This chapter sums up the findings of this study about social survival and change in Mozambique during the war. It demonstrates how an anthropology of the social condition in war might contribute to questions of broader theoretical importance to the discipline as a whole. It also proposes a theoretical framework for explaining the specific direction of war-time and postconflict transformation in Machazian social relations.
