See James Flanagan, “Court History or Succession Document: A Study of 2 Samuel 9–20 and 1 Kings 1–2, ” Journal of Biblical Literature 91 (1972), pp. 172–181; Marsha C. White, The Elijah Legends and Jehu’s Coup: An Examination of a Biblical Accession Text (Ann Arbor: University Microfilms, 1994), pp. 141–150; McKenzie, King David, pp. 30–36, 129–184. The same kind of analysis I have summarized with respect to the History of David’s Rise and the Revolt Narrative can be (and has been) done with respect to other early sources, including the Ark Narrative (1 Samuel 4–6) and Solomon’s Succession Narrative (2 Samuel 10–12; 1 Kings 1–2). Regarding the former, see Patrick D. Miller, Jr., and J.J.M. Roberts, The Hand of the Lord: A Reassessment of the “Ark Narrative” of I Samuel (Baltimore: Johns Hopkins Univ. Press, 1977); and, with regard to the latter, T.C.G. Thornton, “Solomonic Apologetic in Samuel and Kings,” Church Quarterly Review 169 (1968), pp. 159–166; R.N. Whybray, The Succession Narrative: A Study of II Samuel 9–20; I Kings 1 and 2, Studies in Biblical Theology 9 (Naperville, IL: Allenson, 1968); and McCarter, II Samuel: A New Translation with Introduction, Notes and Commentary, Anchor Bible 9 (Garden City, NY: Doubleday, 1984), pp. 11–16.
