The book provides excellent insights into the life and culture of Brazil, and how football is one of the key threads that hold this diverse country together. Somewhat like cricket madness in India. The writer, though, digresses quite a bit to try and make the book entertaining/5.

The Portuguese culture is by far the dominant of these influences; from it Brazilians acquired their language, their main religion, and most of their customs. The Indian population is now statistically small, but Tupí-Guaraní, the language.

Illustrating how “governing through death” has become the dominant means for managing and controlling ethnic populations in the neoliberal state, Jaime Amparo Alves shows that these tactics only lead to more marginalization, criminality, and violence.
