Abstract:Concerned with one particular type of non-group: the coalition. A coalition is defined as an alliance between social actors who adopt a common stand in conflicting situations. The aim of this paper is twofold. Firstly, to bring into focus the structural aspects of levelling and interest coalitions. Secondly, to investigate the use of the concepts of network analysis for the delineation of coalitions, and to discuss the relevance of the postulates which underlie modern network analysis for the study of conflicts. The article is based on data concerning conflicts and coalitions gathered in a village in southwestern Tanzania. Diagr., geneal., notes.
