  1. Higher frequencies of warfare will be positively associated with higher community permeability values (limited accessibility to households) (142)Peregrine, Peter N. - An archaeological correlate of war, 1993 - 2 Variables

    Using the ethnographic record, this study develops and tests the idea that community permeability may be used as an archaeological predictor of warfare. With the exception of pastoral societies, community permeability predicts warfare.

  2. More exclusionary polities (vs. more corporate) will predict more conflict following climate-related disasters.Peregrine, Peter N. - Reducing post-disaster conflict: a cross cultural test of four hypotheses us..., 2018 - 2 Variables

    This article uses pre-defined criteria to sample 22 archaeological climate-related disasters from 9 distinct regions from eHRAF Archaeology. It quantitatively tests four hypotheses regarding change in conflict following climate-related disasters using multiple regression analyses and backwards stepwise regression. Findings demonstrate association between political strategy/authority decision making and degree of post climate disaster conflict.

  4. Societies with more corporate political strategies are more resilient to catastrophic climate-related disastersPeregrine, Peter N. - Social resilience to climate-related disasters in ancient societies: a test ..., 2017 - 8 Variables

    In the present study, Peregrine tests two perspectives regarding social resilience to climate-related disasters: 1) that societies with more inclusive and participatory political structures (corporate political strategies) are more resilient to climate-related disasters, and 2) that societies with tighter adherence to social norms are more resilient to climate-related disasters. Results support the notion that societies with greater political participation are more socially resilient to catastrophic climate-related disasters. Because these results are justifiably generalizable across multiple historical and cultural contexts, Peregrine's findings are a useful contribution to aid in disaster response policy decision making.

  6. Where leaders promote collectivity and reduction of competition there will be less conflict following climate-related disasters.Peregrine, Peter N. - Reducing post-disaster conflict: a cross cultural test of four hypotheses us..., 2018 - 3 Variables

  8. Societies that were more corporate were predicted to be more resilient to climate change during the Late Antique Little Ice Age than those that were more exclusionary.Peregrine, Peter N. - Social resilience to nuclear winter: lessons from the Late Antique Little Ic..., 2021 - 2 Variables

    The author analyzes conditions that might favor social resilience during the Late Antique Little Ice Age (ca. 536-556 CE). The assumption is made that climatic conditions in the Northern Hemisphere during this period of time are very similar to those that would occur during a nuclear winter. These conditions include a drop in temperature and decreased solar radiation from volcanic eruptions. Measures for social resilience come from multiple variables for social change, which are tested against measures for type of political engagement. It is argued that broad political participation is correlated with resilience.

  9. Ingroup loyalty will be positively associated with outgroup violence (1561)Cohen, Taya R. - Group morality and intergroup relations: cross-cultural and experimental evi..., 2006 - 2 Variables

    This study tests the relationship between group morality and hostility towards outgroups. Cross-cultural findings support the hypothesis that ingroup loyalty is associated with a greater emphasis on outgroup violence. Results from a second psychological study are included and also support the hypothesis.

  10. Frequency of warfare will be negatively associated with mobility (65).Kelly, Robert L. - Warless and warlike hunter-gatherers: a comparison, 2000 - 2 Variables

    This book examines the characteristics of warlike and warless foraging societies, as well as the transitional stages that occur when a society becomes warlike. Several predicted correlates of warfare frequency are supported.
