This is an account of a special part of industrial espionage—labor spying. In Spy Overhead the author describes how industrialists, by hiring secret operatives to spy among workmen, attempted to prevent American labor from organizing itself; Calkins based her study and analyses on material obtained from the records of Senator La Follette’s civil liberties investigative committee.
