Abstract: This work focuses on the administrative system headed by the Lozi king and his councils, on the loyalty relationships between titled royalty and commoners, and on the general Lozi conception of nation as bound up with royalty in a kind of fictive familial relation. Gluckman gives extensive descriptions of the traditional kings's councils and the effect on these as well as on the 'sector' system which British rule had. There is no extensive information on family, kinship, socialization, or daily life of Lozi and affiliated tribes; Gluckman does not argue that the domestic nuclear family unit is unstable and that kinship-grouping is vague.
