By:Hilario Franco Junior

Publisher:Companhia das letras

Subject:Soccer, History, World Cup, Brazil


In sixty essays - among unpublished and already published in the press and specialized websites, in a revised and expanded version -, the historian Hilário Franco Júnior invites the reader to reflect on what is arguably the greatest Brazilian sport: soccer. With accessible texts, but without losing sight of academic rigor, Giving deals to the ball explores the various layers that make up an essential subject to understand our culture, history and identity. Included in the author's careful analysis are the social and cultural aspects of sport, the role of the fans, the image of the great players, the influence of the institutions behind the championships, the possibility of seeing in teams such as Corinthians a representation of society Brazilian, as well as a detailed evaluation of the role of Brazil in each World Cup.
