Description

With his trademark eloquence and humour, Robert Dessaix, one of Australia's eminent writers, tackles humbug in the modern world-the tide of mumbo jumbo where words fall short of what they mean and motivations are not always what they appear. MUP's Little Books on Big Themes series pairs leading Australian thinkers and cultural figures with some of the big themes in life.
