you are just to blind to see.  If it is marketed as history it is history, good, bad or indifferent.

>The cut and paste extract from the publisher is from the marketing side of the house.
>So thar is all a null.
>The publisher, on the publishing side of the house, had not listed this work as a history work.
>In its own house.
>No one has refuted this simple statement.
>So, if the publishing side does not count this as a "history" publication, all academic arguments are void.

>>> We can discuss terms, but Holt, the publisher, does not list this as a history book on its site. Maybe I am looking for it wrong.  The terms used aere samples of descriptions used for the book, including the publishers site.
>> 
>> Yes.  You are wrong.  It is not a novel and the publisher - and everyone else -  describes it as a history.
>> 
>> Here is how the publisher describes it.
>> 
>> A riveting historical narrative of the heart-stopping events surrounding the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, and the first work of history from mega-bestselling author Bill O'Reilly
>> 
>> What part of history don't you understand?
>> 
>>
