Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This source contains a sociological analysis of the social organization of KwaZulu-Natal as a single system composed of two 'color groups' each of which is internally subdivided. Gluckman attempts to show how the systematic interrelationships create conflict as well as cooperation among social groups, leading to both change and stability in the social system. Basically the article is concerned with theoretical issues and such data as are presented are chosen to illustrate the argument. The data are largely confined to a micro-description of two brief events involving interaction between Zulus and Europeans.
