  1. "In general, the groups with the most varied and frequent contacts [with civilized or semicivilized peoples] are the most warlike" (67)Wright, Quincy - Primitive warfare and Appendix IX, 1942 - 2 Variables

    This chapter is concerned with correlates of warlikeness among non-industrial societies. Findings indicate that warlikeness is associated with climate, mobility, subsistence, political integration, division of labor, culture contact.

  6. "[Relation of subsistence level to warlikeness:] it seems clear that collectors, lower hunters and lower agriculturalists are the least warlike. The higher hunters and higher agriculturalists are more warlike, while highest agriculturalists and pastorals are most warlike" (66)Wright, Quincy - Primitive warfare and Appendix IX, 1942 - 2 Variables

    This chapter is concerned with correlates of warlikeness among non-industrial societies. Findings indicate that warlikeness is associated with climate, mobility, subsistence, political integration, division of labor, culture contact.

  7. Territorial fractionalization will be positively correlated with violent conflict against ethnically distinct host government.Cederman, Lars-Erik - Redemption through Rebellion: Border Change, Lost Unity, and Nationalist Con..., 2022 - 2 Variables

    Using a new measure called "territorial fractionalization" to indicate the extent to which traditional societies are split across current states, the authors of this study propose that fragmentation of ethnic groups and ethnonationalism is key to understanding civil conflict. They find that higher measures of territorial fractionalization significantly predict a higher risk of civil conflict, and that greater increases in territorial fractionalization also predict greater risk of civil conflict. These results hold for a global sample of data from 1945 to 2017, as well as in European and African subsamples dating back to 1886.

  9. "The more frequently political communities or political alliances fight for politico-economic objectives (subjugation, tribute, land, plunder), the less likely they will negotiate peace (use mediation, arbitration, direct negotiation)" (157)Tefft, Stanton K. - Warfare regulation: a cross-cultural test of hypotheses among tribal peoples, 1974 - 2 Variables

    This paper tests "theories which suggest that there are causal-functional relationships between the dependent variables peacemaking and peace stability on the one hand and certain independent variables, such as political complexity, warrior class, warfare objectives, cultural homology and intersocietal ties, on the other hand." Significant relationships were found between the last three independent variables.

  10. "In societies where infants' heads/limbs were repeatedly molded or stretched, where ears, noses or lips were pierced, where they were circumcised, vaccinated, innoculated or scarred with tribal marks, mean adult stature was over two inches greater" (1018)Landauer, Thomas K. - Infantile stimulation and adult stature of human males, 1964 - 4 Variables

    In previous studies, researchers have observed an increased growth rate in rats that experienced stimulation during infancy. This study examines the relationship between stressful experiences during infancy and adult male stature in humans cross-culturally. Results suggest a strong positive relationship between infant stress and adult male stature.
