This chapter examines the legacy of Fornara’s Herodotus: An Interpretative Essay, looking especially at the relative unity of the Histories, their date of composition and publication, and the ways in which they reflect the context of the Atheno-Peloponnesian Wars. It also frames the various contributions of subsequent chapters.
