Yes - It's published by the Cornell University Press by two history professors. The Catalyst record mentions that there's a bibliography and an index. (Note: monographs are often written by a single author, but that is not a requirement)
Yes - It's not a collection of primary sources, and it's not a reference source.
Unclear from the Catalyst record alone, so I consulted a book review for more information. After reading that, it looks like it is indeed a single topic work.
"The book satisfies all expectations of a standard history...". From: Trachtenbert, Alan. "Reviews of Books -- The Park and the People: A History of Central Park by Roy Rosenzweig and Elizabeth Blackmar." The American Historical Review 98, no. 5 (1993): 1671. https://www.jstor.org/stable/2167209
Yes/No - This collection is published by Princeton University Press (scholarly). However the original primary source material that is being published did not go through any scholarly peer review process.
No - While there is an introduction written by the editor, this is primarily a collection of primary sources.
No - since the collection of primary sources, each item is about a different topic. The collection is artificially unified around the author (Nixon) by the editor (Perlstein).
Book, and not journal article?
Yes/No - The entire edited volume is a book length work. However, there are two creators listed: Richard Nixon (author of the primary sources), and the person who edited the volume after the fact. As such, most people will want to cite an individual source, and not the collection writ large.
