This is a significantly revised and expanded doctoral dissertation which shows that the divine name, contrary to what is commonly thought, was still in use in the Second Temple Period. The author particularly examines all the non mystical mentions of the term Ιαω, and shows that its use lasted until the second / third century. It has been known by the Christians, and they probably used it outside any magical context.

A French version of the review is also available here.
