The debate over history, history-writing, and the scientific study of history is reaching an apex in the late twentieth century. The literture on the topic in the past two decades is prodigious. And few areas of research in the Hebrew Bible are generating as much discussion as Israilite historiography. The time is thus ripe for an anthology of just this sort. The volume will prove useful for courses or seminars on historiography, Old Testament/Hebrew Bible historiography and historical studies, and as a resource for those interested in the current state of the question.
