Few in Congress have accomplished more than former Representative David Bonior on behalf of average Americans. Whip is the story of how he did it. We are treated to vivid portraits of the people Bonior worked with, such as Speaker Tip O’Neill and both Presidents Bush.

Key to the Bonior story was his ability, as a leading progressive, to keep winning reelection in a Michigan district renowned as the home of the Reagan Democrat. Bonior stood up to people of his own party to oppose trade deals such as NAFTA that left American workers behind.

Whip is an expression of the progressive spirit of our age, in all its complexity.
