"Turning the envelope over, his hand trembling, Harry saw a purple wax seal bearing a coat of arms; a lion, an eagle, a badger and a snake surrounding a large letter 'H'." Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin! Pottermore has now launched the Wizarding World Book Club. Visit Pottermore to sign up and join weekly Twitter discussions at WW Book Club.

Hayim Nahman Bialik is considered one of the greatest Hebrew poets of modern times. As he possessed a thorough command of Hebrew and the unusual ability to use fully the resources of the language, his literary career is touted as a turning point in modern Hebrew literature. He greatly influenced and, to a large degree, anticipated the Hebrew spoken in modern Israel.Several poems, particularly his immensely popular children's verse, has been set to music. He is considered Israel's national poet. Until now there has been little academic attention in English about Bialik's work; Hadari's new translation of a selection of his major work fills that void.

Studying Men And Masculinities

The late-twentieth-century anxiety about a 'crisis in masculinity' still persists today, particularly in English-speaking cultures. Studying Men and Masculinities offers an engaging and comprehensive overview of masculinity. Drawing on a wide range of cultural practices and texts from different genres and media, David Buchbinder examines the notion of patriarchy and the challenges to patriarchal power, including queer theory. The book considers whether crisis may in fact be built into the very structure of the masculine, and examines emergent masculinities post-9/11. Theoretical positions within the field are clearly explained and applied to real life case studies from literature, film, and television. Interspersed in each chapter are a series of questions and tasks aimed at encouraging the reader to engage her/himself in the study of masculinities in everyday life and popular culture. This topical and thought-provoking book will be an invaluable resource for students of masculinities studies, sexuality studies, cultural studies, and gender theory.

Tuesday, January 23, 2002, Jerusalem, Israel. M.K. (Member of Knesset [Israels Parliament]) David Solomon was found dead in his office, sprawled over his desk, half his head blasted off and a gun in his right hand. The Speaker of the Knesset and the Knesset Security Chief both concluded that M.K. Solomon had committed suicide. Young Itzik Bitton, a rooky in the Knesset Guard having a decorated history with an elite combat unit, finds inconsistencies in their conclusions. He launches his own investigation despite being ordered not to intervene, and soon gets into troubles. The plot thickens with political intrigues lurching at each turn in the Knesset's corridors. Dubious real estate shenanigans, mobster's deals, a corrupt Knesset Member, a dead cop, a love story and remnants of the Yom-Kippur war all add up to a suspenseful novel with a strong statement about the political culture of Israel today. A review by Amnon Jackont (a renowned Israeli writer): "One hundred twenty-minus one" is a thriller with a distinct social indictment. In this fascinating and surprising novel Hertzel Frenkel has merged the political reality known to all of us from the media, with the personal story of an idealistic young couple seeking justice in a violent, cynical and alienated world".
