"For over a decade, the Harry Potter books have become ubiquitous early texts for children, and are also a popular choice for many adults. Critical Perspectives on Harry Potter provided the first sustained analyses of the iconic status of the Potter books, bringing together scholars from various disciplines to examine the impact of the series. This thoroughly revised edition includes updated essays on cultural themes and literary analysis, and its new essays analyze the full scope of the seven-book series as both pop cultural phenomenon and as a set of literary texts. Critical Perspectives on Harry Potter, second edition draws on a wider range of intellectual traditions to explore the texts, including moral-theological analysis, psychoanalytic perspectives, and philosophy of technology."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)

Critical Perspectives on Harry Potter is a collection of well-researched essays on a variety of topics relating to Harry Potter such as education and media. I was intrigued by the essays and the level of research that went into them. ( )
