20. Mai 2011 Wiley Pop Culture and History (Buch 1)
A guide to the history behind the world of Harry Potter--just in time for the last Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part II)
Harry Potter lives in a world that is both magical and historical. Hogwarts pupils ride an old-fashioned steam train to school, notes are taken on parchment with quill pens, and Muggle legends come to life in the form of werewolves, witches, and magical spells. This book is the first to explore the real history in which Harry's world is rooted.
Did you know that bezoars and mandrakes were fashionable luxury items for centuries? Find out how Europeans first developed the potions, spells, and charms taught at Hogwarts, from Avada Kedavra to love charms. Learn how the European prosecution of witches led to the Statute of Secrecy, meet the real Nicholas Flamel, see how the Malfoys stack up against Muggle English aristocrats, and compare the history of the wizarding world to real-life history.
* Gives you the historical backdrop to Harry Potter's world
* Covers topics ranging from how real British boarding schools compare to Hogwarts to how parchment, quills, and scrolls used in the wizarding world were made
* Includes a timeline comparing the history of the wizarding world to Muggle "real" history
Filled with fascinating facts and background, Harry Potter and History is an essential companion for every Harry Potter fan.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fun with wizarding history 23. Mai 2011
Von Sookie Stoker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I enjoyed this book, because it gives you more about Harry's world by exploring the real history that the wizarding world is built on. There are interesting chapters about where bezoars, mandrakes, the Philosopher's Stone, or particular spells and potions came from, and how they were used by Muggles throughout history (and photos of real bezoars and other things that looked like they belonged in Prof. Snape's classroom). The book also uses history to tell you more about wizarding institutions like Hogwarts, the Ministry and Wizengamot, Gringotts, and pureblood elite families like the Malfoys, or groups like the werewolves.

I liked the timeline at the start of the book, comparing Muggle and wizarding history. It's well-written and an amusing read for Potter fans who want to know more about some of the characters and the wizarding world as a whole----sort of like a book version of the "Wizarding World of Harry Potter" theme park.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting, slightly disorganized 27. August 2011
Von Alan Mazer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I enjoyed this book, with two caveats.

First, and Potter fans please forgive me for saying this, the book talks about the Potter world as if it were factually true. Now this approach is cute, but in a few places I found it hard to tell whether the book was telling me about real "Muggle" history or about something that happened in Rowling's imagination. In the worst cases the book draws sociological conclusions from things that didn't really happen. One shouldn't try to draw real-world conclusions from situations that are entirely imaginary.

Second, I really found the book to be disorganized. There are chapters and subheadings, to be sure, but the book read like a huge collection of random thoughts. Part of this feeling no doubt comes from the fact that the book is a collection of essays by many different authors. But there was little organization that I could see, and so, despite the wealth of interesting facts and observations, I found it difficult to make sense of the book as a whole. I think the book would be vastly improved by a clearer structure.

In short, I found the book to be okay, certainly readable, and probably of interest to many Potter fans. But I think the vast amount of material, with additional editing, could make a better book than it does.

If you are an OLD (65) Harry Potter freak like myself, this is an interesting book, well worth the price.

5.0 von 5 Sternen fun history 11. Juni 2011
Von History student - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This book is great! It connects up stuff in the wizarding world with real-life things like witches, werewolves (at least stories about werewolves), boarding schools and even Nazis. I like history anyway and I love Harry Potter but even if you don't this is way less boring than you think.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Not exactly 25. Januar 2014
Von Catherine Cedeno - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This volume was not really what I expected. It was very hard to read. It does make a good addition to the Harry Potter collection.
