This book aims to demonstrate that Primary History, the historical work contained in the first nine books of the Hebrew Bible (Genesis-2 Kings), was written as one unitary work, in deliberate emulation of the Greek-language Histories of Herodotus of Halicarnassus (completed c. 440 BCE), so that the diversity of its books and sections is largely a literary device. The work is believed to have been written in the period 440-420 BCE, in the period of reform usually associated with the name of Nehemiah. Though this thesis does not directly affect questions of historicity, understanding the literary nature of Primary History promises to open new vistas for research into the history of Israel, the Hebrew Bible in general and the history of the Hebrew language.
