Is interpretation of known historical facts protectable under copyright law?


I am looking for useful sources on protecting copyright. I am in the process of writing a book based on my own new and independent interpretation of known historical facts. Is the interpretation part protected under copyright law? And can anyone recommend any good resources for understanding this aspect of copyright law? Thank you in advance for your help.

Copyright protects the expression and creativity, but not facts. Interpretation as you put it is rather nebulous ... you can protect the book per se in that you can control the electronic rights, but if you want to be associated with the interpretation, or be considered the thought-leader on the subject, then that is starting to edge into publicity rights or perhaps even personal brand
