They found not only approval amongst adults but many critical voices have risen in a sharp tone against the internationally succesful tales from the wizard world.Especially on the internet but as well in printed magazines and newspapers we can read about alleged satanism in the books. The author of this scholarly book is a political scientist, who lives in Germany. He undergoes a thorough analysis of the seven novels. He comes up with scores of quotations from the original books and poses them in a scholarly context. So the reader can find out about the main subject of the novels: real friendship, racism and how to fight it, tolerance, education and knowledge, love and the nonsense of esotericism. The author can proof how wrong the well known accusations are; and that J.K. Rowling is a truthful supporter of a broad humanistic education fighting intolerance and ignorance. Kück does a careful scrutiny on the Harry Potter books and can prove that Ms Rowling does not promote satanism.

Harry Potter and the Millennials tells the fascinating story of how the team designed the study and gathered results, explains what conclusions can and cannot be drawn, and reveals the challenges social scientists face in studying political science, sociology, and mass communication. Specifically, the evidence indicates that Harry Potter fans are more open to diversity and are more politically tolerant than nonfans; fans are also less authoritarian, less likely to support the use of deadly force or torture, more politically active, and more likely to have had a negative view of the Bush administration. Furthermore, these differences do not disappear when controlling for other important predictors of these perspectives, lending support to the argument that the series indeed had an independent effect on its audience. In this clear and cogent account, Gierzynski demonstrates how social scientists develop and design research questions and studies.

This book offers a rationale for and ways of reading popular culture for peace. It argues that we can improve peacebuilding theory and practice through examining popular culture’s youth revolutionaries and their outcomes - from their digital and plastic renderings to their living embodiments in local struggles for justice. The study combines insights from post-structural, post-colonial, feminist, youth studies and peace and conflict studies theories to analyze the literary themes, political uses, and cultural impacts of two hit book series – Harry Potter and The Hunger Games – tracing how these works have been transformed into visible political practices, including social justice advocacy and government propaganda in the War on Terror. Pop culture production and consumption help maintain global hierarchies of inequality and structural violence but can also connect people across divisions through fandom participation. Including chapters on fan activism, fan fiction, Guantanamo Bay detention center, youth as a discursive construct in IR, and the merchandizing and tourism opportunities connected with The Hunger Games, the book argues that through taking youth-oriented pop culture seriously, we can better understand the local, global and transnational spaces, discourses, and the relations of power, within which meanings and practices of peace are known, negotiated, encoded and obstructed.
