    Abstract

    Durkheims theory on solidarity and division of labor offers an alternative to the utilitarian conceptual framework in order to analyze the wars of the Mano River type. Utilitarian explanations, limiting understanding of social processes to the world of routine calculation, fail to grasp the special intensity of war. Instead, violence, as Durkheim views it, belongs to those moments of human interaction he terms « effervescence », in which social orders are made or destroyed. This requires a sociological understanding of solidarity.
