Israel and the Dead Sea Scrolls
From The Publisher:
The scrolls of the Essenes and the history of this Jewish sect's possible antecedence to Christiantiy intrigued Edmund Wilson and drew him, in 1954, to Israel and the revelation contained in the newly discovered scrolls. His resulting account of the scrolls' history and significance was first published in the New Yorker, and expanded into book form, and then revised just before Wilson's death.
"Mr. Wilson has been a wizard in his conquering of the facts of an incredibly involved archaeological story."
"Mr. Wilson tells this story admirably:he has spared no paines in tracking down elusive facts...Most interesting to this reviewer are the superb vignettes of scholars whom he knows."
—New York Herald Tribune
