  7. "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.

  8. Menstrual taboos will be associated with the presence of a post-partum sex taboo and little father-son contact in early childhood (281).Carroll, Michael P. - Totem and taboo, purity and danger…and fads and fashion in the study of poll..., 1983 - 3 Variables

    This article examines three theories regarding the existence of pollution rules. Results show support for a psychological theory put forward by Freud that predicts a relationship between father-child contact, post-partum sex taboos, and menstrual taboos.

  9. The cultural differences in the extent to which physical punishment is employed in socialization is related to cultural differences in the extent to which conformity and self-reliance are differentially valued (132-133).Petersen, Larry R. - Social structure, socialization values, and disciplinary techniques: a cross..., 1982 - 6 Variables

    This article focuses on the relationship between the use of physical punishment during child socialization and the amount of supervision that adults experience. The authors analyze data using a path analysis which suggests that the greater the valuation of conformity relative to self-reliance, the greater the use of physical punishment during child socialization. Precursors of conformity are also suggested.
