Meek and Beldman's stated goal is to make engagement with Ecclesiastes easier and more efficient, and in that they succeed . Summing Up: Recommended.
A 'must have', thoroughly useful resource for any student or scholar of Ecclesiastes/Qoheleth covering modern scholarship 1900-2015 and treating secondary literature on the book - articles, commentaries and books - not just chapter by chapter, but also theme by theme. This bibliography forms a companion to The Making of Many Books by Stuart Weeks (2014) which covered 1523-1875. Between them, these two books have all the bibliographic information on Ecclesiastes you are ever likely to need. Russell Meek and David Beldman have done a great service to scholarship with their careful classification and thorough work.
