    schema:description ""As the wild success of Harry Potter has given rise to "Pottermania," the adventures of the young sorcerer have inspired a movie, Web sites, board games, fan clubs, and a wide range of paraphernalia. This significant cultural phenomenon constitutes a powerful form of social context, and speaks volumes about the intersections of ideology, popular culture, and childhood. Harry Potter's World provides overdue analyses of the Potter phenomenon, bringing together scholars from various disciplines to examine the impact of the series. Drawing upon reader response theory, genre theory, cultural studies, psychology, and sociology, this collection examines marketing hype and product spin-offs and offers interpretive and critical perspectives on the books themselves." -- Publisher's description"@en ;
