  7. A short supply of women will be positively associated with the frequency of warfare--Divale and Harris (251)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.
