  1. "Political communities that have different value systems are more likely to regulate warfare more successfully than those with similar value systems" (163)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.

  2. "Political communities with professional soldiers whose special function it is to wage war will be less likely to develop institutionalized peacemaking procedures" (160)Tefft, Stanton K. - Warfare regulation: a cross-cultural test of hypotheses among tribal peoples, 1974 - 2 Variables

  8. "Political communities which terminate war by diplomatic negotiations are likely to initiate war by announcement or mutual arrangement" (39)Otterbein, Keith F. - The evolution of war: a cross-cultural study, 1970 - 2 Variables

    This book investigates the evolution of military organizations and their activities. Hypotheses frequently relate military organizations to political variables. Data suggested that more politically centralized societies have more sophisticated military organizations which are more likely to be successful in conflict (though military sophistication does not appear to deter attack).

  9. "No war or infrequent war should be correlated with stable peace and frequent war with unstable peace" (61)Divale, William Tulio - War, peace, and marital residence in pre-industrial societies, 1976 - 2 Variables

    This article tests a series of hypotheses differentiating internal warfare and external warfare. Results support the theory that internal warfare is a population control mechanism more common in patrilocal societies, whereas external warfare occurs between two societies, one of which recently migrated and adopted matrilocal residence. Based on these findings, the authors assert that internal warfare can be regulated while external warfare cannot.

  10. "The higher the level of political centralization, the more likely that war will be terminated by diplomatic negotiations" (36)Otterbein, Keith F. - The evolution of war: a cross-cultural study, 1970 - 2 Variables

    This book investigates the evolution of military organizations and their activities. Hypotheses frequently relate military organizations to political variables. Data suggested that more politically centralized societies have more sophisticated military organizations which are more likely to be successful in conflict (though military sophistication does not appear to deter attack).
