We study how norms can solve distributional conflict inside a clan and the efficient
coordination of collective action in a conflict with an external enemy.We
characterize a fully non-cooperative equilibrium in a finite game in which a
self-enforcing norm coordinates the members on efficient collective action
and on a peaceful distribution of the returns of collective action.
