carré-roux The Chicago Manual of Style, 14th edition, 1993, p. 282-283.

In regular title capitalization, also known as headline style, the first and last words and all nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs and subordinating conjunctions ("if", "because", "as", "that", etc.) are capitalized.
Article ("a", "an", "the"), coordinating conjunctions ("and", "but", "or", "for", "nor"), and prepositions, regardless of length, are lowercased unless they are the first or last word of the title or subtitle. The "to" in infinitives is also lowercased. [...]
Capitalizing hyphenated and open compounds (*) may be simplified by application of the following rule: First elements are always capitalized; subsequent elements are capitalized unless they are articles, prepositions, coordinating conjunctions, or such modifiers as "flat", "sharp", and "natural" following musical key symbols; second elements attached by hyphens to prefixes are not capitalized unless they are proper nouns or proper adjectives. If a compound (other than one with a hyphenated prefix) comes at the end of the title, its final element, whatever part of speech it may be, is always capitalized.

* P. 202: "An open compound is a combination of separate words that are so closely related as to constitute a single concept. Examples: settlement house, lowest common denominator, stool pigeon"; p. 196: "doctor of philosophy, coup d’etat, master of art".
