Abstract In this latest entry in the Ancient Israel and Its Literature series, W. Dennis
Tucker, Jr. examines the role of Persian imperial ideology in the creation of psalms
in Book V of the Psalter and in the shaping of the book of Psalms as a whole.
Although much research has been conducted on the relationship between Persian
empire and the creation of biblical texts, the book of Psalms has been largely
absent from this discussion. Tucker seeks to rectify this omission by illustrating
that Book constructed a subtle anti-imperial ideology in response to the threats
imposed from all empires both past and present.
