Eagles, donkeys and butterflies : an anthropological study of Brazil's "animal game" by Roberto da Matta( Book )
7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 174 libraries worldwide
"Roberto DaMatta, one of Brazil's foremost anthropologists, and Elena Soarez approach the question of gambling in popular culture in general and its treatment in social anthropology in particular. They focus on the "animal game", a kind of popular Brazilian gambling entertainment or lottery in which locals bet on a list of twenty-five animals. The authors argues that the success of this game, which originated in 1882 with the founding of the first zoo in Rio de Janeiro, and the social release the game provides are significant aspects of Brazilian social history and identity."--Jacket
