  6. "Monogamy is significantly related to a greater degree of societal complexity than is polygyny. . . . The organizational pattern most characteristic of polygynous societies can be noted as relatively intermediate in complexity rather than very simple" (15)Osmond, Marie W. - Toward monogamy: a cross-cultural study of correlates of type of marriage, 1965 - 2 Variables

    This study presents a sociological theory of marriage type based on socioeconomic organization. Results suggest that intensive agriculture, more stratification, greater political integration, a fixed settlement pattern, a larger population, and greater labor specialization tended to be correlates of monogamy.

Results show that in uncentralized political systems, fraternal interest groups and unauthorized raiding parties may increase the incidence of internal war.

  9. "Territorial gain proved unrelated to one-sided benefits [subsidy, women or honors conferred by one state on its rival] or trade.

  10. "Societies with uxorilocal/matrilocal residence are more likely to have a higher degree of external warfare than societies with virilocal/patrilocal residence" (275).Carter, Jr., Harold - Military organization as a response to residence and size of population: a c..., 1977 - 2 Variables

    This study tests an adaptational theory of military organization. Test of the relationship between population, residence type and military organization are presented; findings support the hypotheses.
