When I mentioned the dearth of contraband camp studies in a recent review, no one called me out on the fact that I completely whiffed on Chandra Manning's Troubled Refuge: Struggling for Freedom in the Civil War released just months earlier. A publicist never contacted me about it (in fact, for some reason, the big trade publishers rarely send me anything anymore), and I had glanced past the title many times without realizing what it really was. To make up for the omission, I'll just give it a simple mention here. The WSJ reviewed it [link] around its release time late last summer.
