So after the last discussion on this, I went on Wikipedia to refresh my memory. Apparently, there has never been a long dissertation on Mockingbird and there have only been a handful of short academic papers.

I really hope this Gladwell thing actually gets people to analyze it and maybe do some serious work on the novel which has never been done before.
