A dissertation in history represents the culmination of many years of research and writing by a successful PhD candidate.  The topics must be unique, narrowly focused, and undergo an exhaustive literature review. Thus, mining bliographies of dissertations is often a wonderful way to begin to assemble a list of secondary sources for your own research project.
