My dissertation for my master's degree has been read by eight people. It's not a topic of great interest, so the fact that anyone is reading it is a shock. The weird thing is that all of the readers are American. The dissertation does compare a particular area of law in Canada and the US - my supervisor knew that I added the American angle because the Canadian material didn't give me enough to meet the word count requirement, but the people who examined me didn't - but it's pretty clear it was written by a Canadian. So the interest from Americans is baffling.

This led me to seek it out. Not with any great fervor, but I did read the preview of the draft. For me it tied in to a book I'm working my way through at the moment - the new edition of "The Way We Never Were" by Stephanie Coontz.

It's a wonderful book - footnote and source heavy for the casual reader, but it takes a lot of the things that are "common knowledge" and explores them. Also shows that there was more in the way of "social welfare" requirements, around some things.
