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.

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.
Peter Van Onselen has never shied away from expressing his opinion. As one of Australia's most high-profile political commentators, his preparedness to apply a well-trained mind to political, economic and social issues always provokes interest-and the response is not always favourable. In his first anthology of columns from The Australian, readers will traverse the state of play in Australian politics since the 2019 bushfires and the start of the Coronavirus pandemic right up to the 2022 Australian Federal Election. Peter's headlines often evoke rabid social media commentary about the article and the prolific analyst of national
affairs himself. In PVO join Peter as he goes beyond the headlines and examines the stories that have defined us, their relevance today, the fallout of his pieces at the time, and the times he's had his opinion changed.
