This book represents a highly original, major new contribution to one of the most important and hotly contested issues concerning the book of Isaiah: who wrote it? The author's provocative and important conclusions point to the key role from beginning to end of the so-called `Deutero-Isaiah', hitherto believed to have been merely the author of chapters 40-55.

A. Gelston, Journal of Semitic Studies, Vol. 41, No. 1, '96 This monograph is a major contribution to the study of the composition of the Book of Isaiah, and will necessitate a reorientation of critical perspectives whether its thesis is accepted or rejected. It is written in a lucid and elegant style, and the necessary discussion of text-critical problems in a number of passages is conveniently relegated to an appendix. The scholarly world is deeply indebted to Williamson for such a stimulating contribution to an important
Antti Laato, Hebrew Studies Williamson writes clearly, and it is not difficult to follow his argumentation.
Journal of Biblical Literature Williamson's economical hypothesis has the strength of its simplicity ... Much remains uncertain, but one of the admirable qualities of the work under review is its frank admission of the fact.
