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 Rum Rebellion has, for generations, been told to school children as one of the better stories of Australian history: how Bligh, the villain of Hollywood's version of the Bounty mutiny story, was a tyrant deposed by the New South Wales Corps and dragged out from his hiding place under a bed. It has even been said - and this is just as far from the truth - that the overthrowing of Governor Bligh was a victory for democracy and colonial self-government.
Russel Earls Davis presents an account that, as far as possible from the available evidence, tells what actually did happen in the lead up to the Rum Rebellion and of the legal and political aspects of the aftermath. Bligh in Australia will lend impetus to the growing recent trend to recognise that William Bligh was no tyrant or coward, as his mutinous enemies alleged, but an incredibly strong-willed servant of the British Government who did precisely - sometimes perhaps too precisely - what he had been ordered. On The Bounty, and again in New South Wales, he faced situations where the forces against him would have utterly defeated many a lesser man, yet in the end he prevailed.
