520    The form of social relations described by the terms 
       'patronage' and 'patron-client relations' is of central 
       concern to sociologists, anthropologists and political 
       scientists today. Characterised by its voluntary and 
       highly personal but often fully institutionalised nature, 
       it is a type of behaviour found in almost every human 
       society. It touches upon basic aspects of the construction
       and regulation of social order and is therefore closely 
       connected to major theoretical problems and controversies 
       in the social sciences. 
520 80 This book analyses some special types of these 
       interpersonal relations -- ritual kinship, patron-client 
       relations and friendship -- and the social conditions in 
       which they develop. The authors draw upon a wide range of 
       examples, from societies as diverse as those of the 
       Mediterranean. Latin America, the Middle and Far East and 
       the U.S.S.R., in their study of the core characteristics 
       of such relationships. They look at them as mechanisms of 
       social exchange, examine their impact on the institutional
       structures in which they exist, and assess the 
       significance of the variations in their occurrence. Their 
       analysis highlights the importance of these relationships 
       in social life and concludes with a stimulating discussion
       of the ensuing tensions and ambivalences and the ways in 
       which these are dealt with -- though perhaps never fully 
       overcome. 
520 80 Patrons, clients and friends is the first systematic 
       comparative study of these interpersonal relations and 
       makes the first attempt to relate them to central aspects 
       of social structure. It will therefore be an important 
       contribution to both comparative analysis and social 
       theory and will be of interest to a wide range of 
       socialscientists.
