  1. ". . . 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.

  8. ". . . the more frequently the political communities of a cultural unit are attacked, the more frequently they will attack other societies" (285)Otterbein, Keith F. - Internal war: a cross-cultural study, 1968 - 2 Variables

  9. ". . . societies which frequently engage in war with their neighbors are less likely to have feuding than societies which have peaceful external relations" (1477)Otterbein, Keith F. - An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth: a cross-cultural study of feuding, 1965 - 2 Variables

    This study investigates the presence of feuding, arguing that a solely evolutionary or functional approach misses important inter-societal factors. Results indicate that while fraternal interest groups are associated with feuding, the presence of war and level of political integration also increase the likelihood of feuding.

  10. "It is only in societies with a high level of political integration that there are officials who have the power to intervene [to prevent feuding when the society is threatened by war]" (1478)Otterbein, Keith F. - An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth: a cross-cultural study of feuding, 1965 - 3 Variables
