This is an interesting problem. For a basic introduction to the issues,
see the following article:

George W. Anderson, "Israel: Amphictyony: <am; kahal; <edah." In
_Translating and Understanding the Old Testament: Essays in Honor of
Herbert G. May_, ed. H. T. Frank and W. L. Reed (Nashville, TN: Abingdon
Press, 1970) 135-151.

This should be of considerable help to you.
