Description - Who Wrote the Dead Sea Scrolls, Second Edition by Norman Golb

Since their discovery in the Qumran caves in the beginning of 1947, the Dead Sea Scrolls have been the object of intense fascination and extreme controversy. In this fully updated edition, Professor Norman Golb intensifies the debate over the scrolls origins, arguing that they were not the work of a small, desertdwelling fringe sect, as other scholars have claimed, but written by many different groups of Jews and then smuggled out of Jerusalem's libraries before the Roman siege of AD 70. Golb also unravels the mystery behind the scholarly monopoly that controlled the scrolls for many years and discusses his role as a key player in the successful struggle to make the scrolls widely available to both scholars and students. He pleads passionately for an end to academic politics and a renewed commitment to the search for truth in scroll scholarship.
