In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
Sydney has a rich and complex Aboriginal heritage, despite its bustling urban presence. Hidden within its burgeoning city landscape, lie layers of a vibrant culture and a turbulent history. Aboriginal Sydney shows readers how and where to look.
The first edition of Aboriginal Sydney established itself as authoritative, informative and culturally appropriate. This new edition contains new sites and illustrations. It operates as an authoritative guide book with clear maps, travelling instructions and stories of significant people and events. It is also an alternative social history, told through precincts of significance to the city’s Indigenous people.
Both physical and cultural sites are included:
* Rock art and middens in national parks
*Points of early contact and conflict around the harbour
*Sites of ‘civilising experiments’ in the west
* Places of protest, civil rights action and community pride in Redfern and La Perouse
*Cultural centres, galleries, museums and theatres
