  1. ". . . cohesive kinship groupings should appear as important elements of the political structure in partilineal but not in matrilineal societies" (312)Paige, Jeffery M. - Kinship and polity in stateless societies, 1974 - 2 Variables

    This article suggests a theory of the relationship between rules of descent and polity structure. The author suggests that “polity structure in stateless societies is a consequence of the presence or absence of cohesive factions based on lineage or family” (301). Two types of kinship ties produce different polity structures: cross-cutting ties, common in matrilineal societies, lead to political consensus; overlapping ties, common in patrilineal societies, lead to factionalism. Empirical tests support this theory.
