  1. Food storage will be positively related to frequency of warfare (69).Kelly, Raymond C. - Warless societies and the origin of war, 2000 - 2 Variables

    This book examines the difference between warless and warlike societies and attempts to determine the point at which a society becomes warlike. The author suggests that differences between warless and warlike societies are mostly organizational and hypothesizes that "unsegmented" societies, or societies that have a weaker sense of group identity and cohesion, will be more likely to be warless than "segmented" societies. Several tests are presented. Results generally support the hypothesis.
