  1. Resource scarcity will be negatively associated with warfare frequency in state societies (37).Ember, Carol R. - Risk, uncertainty, and violence in eastern Africa: a regional comparison, 2012 - 2 Variables

    This article examines resource problems and warfare in a sample of societies from eastern Africa. The frequency and predictability of resource problems are examined, as are two other dimensions of warfare: resource-taking and commission of atrocities. Differences between state and nonstate societies, as well as pacified and non-pacified societies, are also examined and shown to affect associations between resource and warfare variables.

  3. Unpredictable scarcity will be more predictive of higher warfare frequency than chronic scarcity (37).Ember, Carol R. - Risk, uncertainty, and violence in eastern Africa: a regional comparison, 2012 - 2 Variables

    This article examines resource problems and warfare in a sample of societies from eastern Africa. The frequency and predictability of resource problems are examined, as are two other dimensions of warfare: resource-taking and commission of atrocities. Differences between state and nonstate societies, as well as pacified and non-pacified societies, are also examined and shown to affect associations between resource and warfare variables.

  4. Warfare frequency will be positively associated with resource problems (9).Ember, Melvin - Fear of disasters as an engine of history: resource crises, warfare, and int..., 1988 - 4 Variables

    This study examines some of the environmental and psychological predictors of warfare frequency and interpersonal aggression. Results suggest that socialization for aggression in boys is the most significant predictor of warfare. However, authors suggest that socialization for aggression may be a consequence, rather than a cause, of war.

  5. More father-infant sleeping distance will be positively associated with warfare frequency (107).Ember, Carol R. - War and socialization of children: comparing two evolutionary models, 2007 - 2 Variables

    This article presents two evolutionary models that may explain relationships between war and socialization of children: the "environmentally contingent reproductive strategy" (ECRS) model put forward by Draper and Harpending (1982), and a model put forward by Carol and Melvin Ember. Results do not provide support for the hypotheses involving father-infant sleeping proximity derived from the ECRS model. The authors also find some inconsistencies with their own model.

  6. Resource problems will be associated with more war (243-244).Ember, Carol R. - Resource Unpredictability, mistrust, and war: a cross-cultural study, 1992 - 2 Variables

    The article tests theories that may explain why warfare frequency varies from society to society. The focus is on ecological problems, particularly different kinds of resource scarcity, but social and psychological theories are also tested with both bivariate and multivariate analyses. Because unpredictable disasters are such a strong predictor in nonstate societies, the authors theorize that war may mostly be caused by a fear of nature.

  7. When included in a model testing the relationship between frequency of warfare, natrual disasters, and socialization for mistrust, food producing will be a significant predictor of frequency of warfare (11).Ember, Carol R. - Violence in the ethnographic record: results of cross-cultural research on w..., 1997 - 4 Variables

    This paper reviews the results of the author's cross-cultural studies of war and aggression and their implications for prehistory.

  8. Threat of natural disasters will be negatively related to warfare frequency in state societiesKorotayev, Andrey V. - Trade and warfare in cross-cultural perspective, 2008 - 2 Variables

    This article examines the relationship between warfare and trade and concludes that the relationship varies within different levels of political organization.

  9. In a multiple regression, father-infant sleeping distance will be associated with warfare frequency, marrying enemies, and polygyny (108).Ember, Carol R. - War and socialization of children: comparing two evolutionary models, 2007 - 4 Variables

    This article presents two evolutionary models that may explain relationships between war and socialization of children: the "environmentally contingent reproductive strategy" (ECRS) model put forward by Draper and Harpending (1982), and a model put forward by Carol and Melvin Ember. Results do not provide support for the hypotheses involving father-infant sleeping proximity derived from the ECRS model. The authors also find some inconsistencies with their own model.

  10. Frequency of conflict and war will be positively associated with society size (127).Roes, Frans L. - Belief in moralizing gods, 2003 - 2 Variables

    This article investigates relationships among society size, war and conflict, preferred habitats, and belief in moralizing gods. The authors discuss morality and collective action in the face of natural disasters and competition for resources, theorizing that beliefs in moralizing gods could facilitate such cooperation.
