About the book:

Horowitz concedes that in no case is politics easily reduced to the simple common denominator of ethnic ties, even in deeply divided societies. The degree to which ethnicity is pervasive is variable. In deeply divided societies, ethnic affiliations impact not only family and social life, but also more formal organizational life. This applies to both the realms of political and economic life (ex. organization of capital and labor, party systems). He argues that for comparative analysis distinguishing between ranked and unranked systems, centralization of groups, severity of division, and group differences is important. He also argues that ethnic groups, which are tied heavily to kinship, are bounded in such a way to maximize the effective use of the political structure and provide many services that are replacements for what the modern western state provides.
