Comments to eBook Drum and Candle: Exploration of Brazilian Spiritism (Man, Myth Magic)

I lived in Rio de Janeiro for some 5 years, teaching and coaching in both English and Portuguese .. this book was my suggested "primer" before arriving for the first time to understand the wild "religion" known as "Umbanda" or "Macumba" ... I saw most of the ceremonies noted in this book "first hand" in my 5 some years in Rio .. often at knifepoint .. often as the only "white guy" in the crowd ... it is stunningly realistic ... but returning to Rio many years later, these "practices" are all but disappearing .. anyways .. for me ... it is a "travel back in time" to when on Sunday when the 99% of the population would visit a Catholic Church, and then light their "Macumba Candles" on the way out ... "just in case!" Easy reading ... highly recommended if you have any interest in developing Brazilian society!

I love this book!
I'm glad that I was advised to find and read this!
It is thin but teaches one a great deal!

And yes, it's about Brazilian vodoo... Read this for a book report in middle school. Goes into amazing detail with all the exu diagrams. Well written personal documentary by the author. Does not get into the spirituality and exact rituals, but enough to make you want to go out and rent the 1987 DeNiro film "Angel Heart". Library wanted my copy back, so now this one found it's home in my library.

Glad to have found this book. It was a book as a gift and a replacement for one lost long ago.

His book was first published in 1971 - and written a good 35 years ago! The titel might be slightly off, but don't let that stop you from buying a copy of this book! Many publishing houses will not follow the authors suggestions, but publish books under a more "rewarding" titel - something that makes more money!

The first couple of pages of David. St. Clair's book read like a critical review of Brazilian religion and spirituality. He asks questions about the educational background of practitioners, about superstitions, poverty, African influences...he starts this book as a critic, not as a "believer".

What follows is a man's amazing journey through various Brazilian traditions - Spiritusm, Candomble, Umbanda and Quimbanda and not to forget "spirit healing" which in Brazil is sometimes not associated with any other practice! David. St. Clair writes in a clear and honest way. He is not afraid to ask himself in the course if this book many times "is this really happening?" Whan you have finished the book, you will see that David. St. Clair's atitude towards Brazilians and Brazilian spirituality has completelly changed. He accepts it, makes use of it, embrases it and - judging from the end of the book - might even practize it!

Don't scream IGNORANZE of you have not read this book but are only put off by the titel. It is excellent, entertaining, refreshing and genuine - unlike some "modern day experts" who are now writing about the subject!

To all the reviewers writing about Brazilian "voodoo". The word does not exist in the Afro-Brazilian vernacular because it is a Francophile bastardization from Haiti, not of Brazilian candombl?.

I especially appreciate the comment from "RioRick" regarding his having witnessed these ceremonies "often at knifepoint"... Give me a break. It is this kind of ignorance that perpetuates the Hollywood fascination with African-derived religions often deemed as "occult" or "black magic".

I am not surprised that all of these reviwers actually enjoyed this book, giving that it probably feeds their imagination for blood-lusting rituals "that can get out of control".

You fools...
