Book Description Knopf (Random House Australia), Sydney, 2004. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Petty (illustrator). First Edition. In this companion to "Death Sentence", the author further reflects on the state of Australia's public language. A dictionary, of what the author calls "weasel words". In here you will find such jargon as; an involuntary career event -- you're fired, or a hospital refers to "negative patient outcomes" -- that patients have died. You'll find the definition of asset footprint or even plausible deniability and other words that obscure the true meaning of what people are trying to say.The eps are illustrated by Petty. BOOK DETAILS: The contents are clean, tight and sound throughout. The boards are clean and unmarked, with only minimal wear. The lettering on the spine is clear and bright. The dust wrapper is not price clipped and shows only minor shelf-wear. No evidence of ageing. A very good copy. 354pp. The unpacked weight of this book is approx. 445g. (Please note: books that weigh over 1kg. (1000g) when packed, will exceed the quoted postage rate to overseas destinations). This BOOK IS IN STOCK and READY TO MAIL NOW. Your book when ordered will be securely packed and promptly dispatched by The Book Collector (Established:1993). **Prompt professional service - satisfaction guaranteed.** Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
