  1. The presence of age-set systems will be positively associated with frequency of warfare (90).Ritter, Madeline Lattman - The conditions favoring age-set organization, 1980 - 2 Variables

    This article reviews the theories on age-set systems and presents a cross-cultural test of Bernardi's theory regarding the development of age-sets as a response to a need for a system of integration in the context of frequent warfare. The findings do not support the hypothesis but rather point to the importance of changing group size and composition of local groups, as well as warfare, in predicting age-set systems.

  2. The presence of age-set systems will be negatively associated with territorially-based descent groups (90).Ritter, Madeline Lattman - The conditions favoring age-set organization, 1980 - 2 Variables

  3. Presence of age-set systems will be positively associated with fluctuation in size and composition of local group (due to warfare) (98).Ritter, Madeline Lattman - The conditions favoring age-set organization, 1980 - 1 Variables

  4. ". . . internal war will be found in uncentralized political systems characterized by fraternal interest groups; . . . the presence of fraternal interest groups in centralized political systems . . . should have no effect on the frequency of internal war . . ." (284)Otterbein, Keith F. - Internal war: a cross-cultural study, 1968 - 3 Variables

    This study examines how social structure, political organization, and intersocietal relations may affect the incidence of internal warfare (between culturally similar political communities). Results show that in uncentralized political systems, fraternal interest groups and unauthorized raiding parties may increase the incidence of internal war.

  6. Political centralization will be negatively associated with plunder as an aim of warfareZinkina, Julia - Circumscription Theory of the Origins of the State: A Cross-Cultural Re-analysis, 2016 - 2 Variables

    In this article, the authors reevaluate Carneiro's (1970) circumscription theory of state formation. They do this by examining relationships between the degree of political hierarchy and whether warfare is conducted for conquest, land acquisition, or plunder. While they find evidence that this theory is plausible in some situations, there is not enough to support the theory wholesale. Thus, they suggest that other theories of state formation should be investigated.

  7. "If we control for level of political complexity, the magnitude of the relationship between the type of initiating party and the frequency of internal war in uncentralized political systems is increased . . ." (283)Otterbein, Keith F. - Internal war: a cross-cultural study, 1968 - 3 Variables

    This study examines how social structure, political organization, and intersocietal relations may affect the incidence of internal warfare (between culturally similar political communities). Results show that in uncentralized political systems, fraternal interest groups and unauthorized raiding parties may increase the incidence of internal war.

  8. Agricultural economy type (Herding-Plus, Egalitarian, Individualistic, or Semi-Marketized) will be associated with the presence of certain political institutions. (116)Frederic L. Pryor - Economic Systems of Foraging, Agricultural, and Industrial Societies, 2005 - 15 Variables

    The second and third parts of this book classify the economic systems of foraging and agricultural societies in the SCCS based on correlations between their institutions of property an distribution. These economic types are then examined for relationships with other social, political, demographic, and environmental factors in order to draw tentative conclusions regarding the origins of the Agricultural and Industrial Revolutions. The fourth part of the book uses cross-national data to examine similar associations in industrial/service economies, and is not included here.
