9780742539587: Harry Potter and International Relations

Why not take seriously the claim that Harry Potter's world intertwines with our own? In this timely yet otherworldly volume, more than a dozen scholars of international relations join hands to demonstrate how this well-loved artifact of popular culture reflects and shapes our own lifeworld. A wide range of historical and sociological sources shows how Harry's world contains aspects of our own. Practices such as quidditch dovetail quite clearly with "muggle" sports, and the very British-ness of the books has, in translation into languages such as Turkish and Arabic, been transformed to reflect these unique cultures. Chapters on the political economy of the franchise as well as the scholarly problems of studying popular culture frame what is essentially a highly info-taining read.

From the Back Cover:

"A landmark in muggle studies."—The Daily Prophet

"Nexon and Neumann explore an underdeveloped area of Harry Potter scholarship in a collection of essays covering a wide range of political and cultural topics. In a post-9/11 world, international relations is a critical area of inquiry. Their book is a valuable contribution to the growing body of scholarly attention to the boy wizard and the magician who created him."—Lana Whited, Ferrum College

"This accessible and original volume will challenge both Harry Potter fans and students of world politics to think more deeply and critically about different forms of engagement between popular culture and world politics. Drawing on "enjoyable evidence" from the Harry Potter universe, this diverse yet coherent collection of essays draws on one of western culture's quintessential commercial mega-texts to demonstrate that our understanding of world politics can be significantly and agreeably expanded by delving into the riches of popular culture."—Jutta Weldes, University of Bristol

"An important contribution to the literature on popular culture and international relations that invites us to re-imagine the real world of international relations through the imagined world of Harry Potter."—Cynthia Weber, Lancaster University

About the Author:

Daniel H. Nexon is assistant professor of government and foreign service at Georgetown University. Iver B. Neumann is associate professor of Russian studies at Oslo University and research professor at the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs.
