An historiography (history of the history) can be an excellent source for discovering the key scholarship on a topic. You can search for historiographies by adding a search term such as:

  • Historiography;
  • Review article; or
  • Review essay.

Databases such as America: History & Life and Historical Abstracts even include Historiography as a subject term. Another reliable source of historiographies is the journal History Compass.
