Melbourne University Press' new series Little Books on Big Themes pairs leading Australian thinkers and cultural figures with some of the big themes in life. Each author's 10,000-word take on a chosen theme is presented as an eminently collectable hardback. 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.
