relatively new Robert Eisenman book on DSS

Title: Breaking the Dead Sea Scrolls Monopoly: A New Interpretation of the Messianic Movement in Palestine (2018) amazon/kindle and pb.

The first part gives his version of the history toward open access of the DSS. One item of interest is that he names Robert Schlosser
as the photographer who supplied him with copies of photos of DSS that were published in book form (Facsimile Edition, 2 vols. 1991). Schlosser was associated with Elizabeth Bechtel who deposited photos at the Huntington Library. That Library back then allowed interlibrary loans for temporary loans of microfilm (after a $50 dollar fee).
The second part gives his interpretation of the Scrolls. I find the first part relatively more interesting.
