Databases and journal archives allow you to search the contents of journals (articles, book reviews). As such, they provide a good avenue for searching the most recent scholarship in a field.
TIP: Add the keywords "historiography" or "review article" to your searches to find articles whose primary focus is historiography. These articles can be good starting points.
Book reviews often talk about the reviewed work in the context of the larger field in which the book is situated. As such, you can use them to get clues about the state of a field on a given topic.
Many of the databases above allow you to limit your search just to reviews. If you don't see this option, add the key words "review" or "review article" to your search.
