McCarter's treatment of "I Samuel" consists of:

"Translation": fresh and authoratative, this new translation of "I Samuel" fully utilizes for the first time ancient manuscript fragments found at Qumran.
"Textual Notes": for the scholar, technical information on the texts used in the translation.
"Notes": for the untrained reader, descriptions of people, places, customs, and unusual features of the language.
"Commentary": an explanatory summary of each passage of translation.
"Maps": illustrating the book's dramatic events.
"From the Hardcover edition."
A thorough analysis of textual and literary sources, as well as an examination of the larger ancient Near Eastern context of the period, leads P. Kyle McCarter, Jr., to descriptions of the people, places, customs, and noteworthy features of the language of I Samuel. For McCarter, a key issue is accounting for the historical circumstances that led to the composition of the books of Samuel. In dialogue with major schools of thought pertaining to the origin and transmission of I Samuel, the author offers his scholarly opinions on its composition. McCarter presents a unique new translation based upon the latest and most extensive textual sources available, including scrolls and fragments from Qumran. Furthermore, he disentangles the complicated textual history of Samuel.
P. Kyle McCarter, Jr., is William F. Albright Professor in Biblical and Near Eastern Studies at Johns Hopkins University. He holds degrees from Harvard University, McCormick Theological Seminary, and the University of Oklahoma.
