Social Division of a Traditional Society

social division of a traditional society crossword clue. 5 letters. A daily crossword puzzle question in UK newspaper.

Answer: TRIBE

Each tribe occupied a recognized territory, averaging perhaps a dozen square miles, and used a common dialect.

Amongst nomads the tribe is the unit of government, the political bond is personal, and there is no definite territorial association of the people, who may be loyal but cannot be patriotic. The idea of a country arises only when a nation, either homogeneous or composed of several races, establishes itself in a region the boundaries of which may be defined and defended against aggression from without.
