How to show books with only 1 tag? Dynamic tag or virtual library?

I have a tag to classify all the non-fiction books; I also have additional tags to classify history, politics, science, IT etc, so a book can be tagged as "non-fiction; history", for example.

Is there a way to show the books which have only the tag "non-fiction"? This would exclude those which have 'non-fiction' and some other tag.

The easiest way would of course be to add a second tag called "other", but I was wondering if there's a smart way to do it with virtual libraries or if there is some kind of dynamic tag that could be used.

Thanks!

@cd2013 - try not tags:"=non-fiction"

I think that'll show books that aren't tagged 'non-fiction', irrespective of other tags.

Click once on the Tag in the tag browser. (shows a Green+)
You will notice the Search (bar) term has an =
That means that it matches that tag, but not a tag that includes the words

To do compound searches. set the first term as above, then hod the control key down and select additional terms. 1 click (+), 2 clicks (-) which is a NOT

If the tag is Hierarchical, there are 2 additional selections ++ and --
Which includ/exclude children
