So yes, the histogram is to be used as a guide - if the subject matter is predominantly dark then the histogram will be more to the left. It's up to you as the photographer to judge the histogram as it relates to the subject matter.
With your never ending thirst for knowledge
here's an excellent tutorial site - and yes, histograms (in detail) are explained. Enjoy.
