Argues that the books of Ezra and Nehemiah help reveal how the Bible received its unusual form. Suggests that the concept of archival historiography makes sense of Ezra and Nehemiah's unusual format and place in the Bible. Integrates archaeology, postcolonial theory, and archive studies into the reading of the text.
