ISBN: 978-1-55643-601-7
Editorial: NORTH ATLANTIC BOOKS
Sinopsis: Arising from some of the worst conditions of oppression ever recorder, capoeira is a Brazilian martial art uniquely grounded in the struggle for survival, freedom, and self-determination. In a “New World” that denied the humanity of people slaving on plantations, in mines, an on the docks of Brazil’s mercantile centers, capoeira became a powerful act of rebellion –with punishment so server, it often resulted in death.

The Jogo de Angola from Luanda to Cyberspace, Volume One chronicles the events that shaped colonial Brazil and created a fighting art founded on central African martial traditions. By tracing capoeira’s development into a clandestine means of physical and mental conditioning, the author illuminates the history behind its movements and structure. Volume Two will detail capoeira’s transition into Brazil’s national sport and its explosive growth worldwide.

“Read this book carefully, because I see that the writer did not have the pretension to be just a manufacturer of capoeira books. He has made this book because he felt the need, and carried out the research, so that he is able to convey some things related to the history of capoeira. It is not fiction. This book is for real”.
- Mestre Sombra, Associaçao de Capoeira Senzala de Santos

“The Jogo de Angola is fresh, original, well-balanced, and very thoroughly researched. A fascinating must-read for all interested in capoeira and African-Brazilian history”.
- Mestre Sylvia Bazzarelli, The London School of Capoeira Herança

“I recommend Gerald Taylor’s work. I think his research is important for capoeira and will interest capoeira readers”.
- Nestor Capoeira, author of The Little Capoeira Book and Capoeira: Roots of the Dance-Fight-Game”

After training at The London School of Capoeira for over seven years, Gerard Taylor co-founded the Oslo Capoeira Klubb in Norway. His second book, Capoeira Conditioning, is a whole-body training manual that will be published by Blue Snake Books in late 2005.
