Observations on First Lady of the Confederacy: Varina Davis's Civil War, bvy Joan E. Cashin

The author is an associate professor of history at Ohio State University. This book has been published by the Belknap Press of Harvard University Press. It has won the Fletcher Pratt award for nonfiction, and was an honorable mention in the Library of Virginia awards.

Why was I only able to find it in the Women's Studies section at Barnes and Noble?

It's from an academic press, it's clearly a biography, set in an obvious historical time period - I would think history, biography, and civil war. Not women's studies.

Who decides how to catagorize these books?!?!
