Dissertations in Foreign Affairs History (and related topics)

It is often hard to keep up on dissertations of interest.  The Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations makes it easier by posting lists of recent dissertations on its website. They may be especially helpful to legal historians interested in comparative or transnational history, foreign relations and military conflict. Here's just a sampling from the 2009 list:
