Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 & 2 Samuel, and 1 & 2 Kings are known as part of the historical books of the canon. However, in Jewish tradition, except for Ruth, they are labeled as prophetic literature.
Covering the rise and decline of Israel, Joshua-Kings moves from land, given as promised, to exile, executed by Yahweh because of the infidelity of the people and the unwillingness of the kings to obey the Torah and listen to the prophets. Joshua-Judges discusses land possession without the rule of kings, and Samuel-Kings emphasizes possessing the land under the leadership of monarchies.
