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.
The rights of First Nations peoples are ‘racist’, left-wing activists are ‘fascists’ and immigration has become tantamount to a ‘foreign invasion’. These are some of the core concepts found in the daily demagoguery of ‘Australia’s most read’ social and political commentator, Andrew Bolt. They are routinely packaged as being underpinned by patriotism, conservative values and egalitarian principles. Yet, as this book argues, Bolt’s commentary frequently resonates with the ideas and sentiments of the Far Right — ultra-nationalism, cultural chauvinism and a reactionary hostility to progressive thought.
History has taught us that only dreadful things come of these ideas. They stand against democracy, internationalism, all that is worthy in Western civilisation, and the security of Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples alike.
