Historian John C. Hennen’s excellent introduction dramatically increases the value of this reissue of the committee’s 1932 report. Hennen insightfully places the committee’s findings within historical context and ably provides readers with a thorough understanding of contemporary attitudes toward unionization and radicalism.
