    In the fourth and most recent book in the series, evil wizards have made a comeback and are threatening the good wizards. Albus Dumbledore, one of the most powerful of the good wizards, urges the senior-level government minister, Cornelius Fudge, to use his position to alert the wizard world to the danger they face.

    But the politician Fudge cannot tell the truth because it could risk, as he says, "the end of my career."
