I didn't find the meaning of The shame of [something] in my search on the internet and that's why I can't conclude its meaning precisely. I want to use The shame of his book for some text in this specific structure as it is grammatically valid, but I think it can mean two meanings.
First possible meaning which I want to convey:
the shame that is attached to his book. (his book has been harmed)
Second possible meaning:
the shame that is caused by his book. (his book is the one that harms)
Could it mean them both or one more than the other?
