The next six chapters broaden out into an investigation of the range of contemporary influences such as literary, intellectual, religious, moral, and social, which helped shape Herodotus' work. Three chapters analyse Herodotus' much-admired skill as a storyteller. The second half of the volume tackles Herodotus as a researcher, historian, ethnographer, geographer, and general critic.
