  1. Cultural tightness will be positively associated with authoritarian leadershipJackson, Joshua Conrad - A global analysis of cultural tightness in non-industrial societies, 2020 - 2 Variables

    This article builds on previous cross-country and cross-state research into Tightness-Looseness (TL) theory, which proposes relationships between the incidence of ecological threat and cultural tightness, as well as tightness’ downstream effects on belief in a moralizing high god, inter-group contact and authoritarian leadership. To evaluate the generalizability of TL theory beyond complex cultures, the authors test these relationships among 86 nonindustrial societies from the ethnographic record. A structural equation model is presented of the results for nonindustrial societies; it is generally in accord with previous findings from more complex societies. Because the nonindustrial sample is more variable, they also look at relationships between societal complexity and kinship heterogeneity, aspects that vary in nonindustrial societies.

  2. "The greater the limitations society places on the open expression of opposition, the more likely the occurrence of annual rituals of conflict" (857).Dirks, Robert - Annual rituals of conflict, 1988 - 5 Variables

    This article explores the factors that predict rituals of conflict. Hypotheses are derived from Gluckman's analysis of Southeast African rituals of rebellion and are tested against a cross-cultural sample.

  3. Pathogen stress will independently predict authoritarian governance when controlling for malnutrition, famine, and warfare in the cross-cultural sample (5).Murray, Damian R. - Pathogens and politics: further evidence that parasite prevalence predicts a..., 2013 - 5 Variables

    This article employs cross-national and cross-cultural methods to investigate whether pathogen stress is a direct determinant of authoritarianism. The study controls on other factors such as famine, warfare, and malnutrition and evaluates alternative causal models.

  4. Concentration of political power will be negatively associated with adults' political involvement in preindustrial societies (80).Ross, Marc Howard - Political organization and political participation: exit, voice, and loyalty..., 1988 - 2 Variables

    This article examines causes of political participation in pre-industrial societies, particularly the level of resources and organization of resources. Hirschman’s concepts of exit, voice, and loyalty are also discussed. A distinction is made between range of community decision-making and the degree of adult involvement. Results from a multiple regression analysis favor the more structural variables (i.e. organization of resources) in the prediction of political participation.

Sixty correlations are tested between measures of female status and an indicator of information monopolization; findings support the hypothesis.
