A precedence relation (shortly, a precedence) can be considered as a couple ([f.sub.1], [f.sub.2]) where [f.sub.1] = rnd(nrphases) [f.sub.2] = rnd (nrphases) and [f.sub.1] [not equal to] [f.sub.2] .

His skillful braiding of these two lines of inquiry yields a nuanced description of how political processes flowing from the center have refashioned authority schemata that developed on the periphery, and projected them into newly created social domains (schools, bureaucracies, unions, parties)--establishing a predominance of stylized "precedence relations" that are neither traditional nor modern.
