  1. A short supply of women will be positively associated with the frequency of warfare--Divale and Harris (251)Ember, Carol R. - Resource Unpredictability, mistrust, and war: a cross-cultural study, 1992 - 2 Variables

    The article tests theories that may explain why warfare frequency varies from society to society. The focus is on ecological problems, particularly different kinds of resource scarcity, but social and psychological theories are also tested with both bivariate and multivariate analyses. Because unpredictable disasters are such a strong predictor in nonstate societies, the authors theorize that war may mostly be caused by a fear of nature.

  2. Resource problems will be associated with more war (243-244).Ember, Carol R. - Resource Unpredictability, mistrust, and war: a cross-cultural study, 1992 - 2 Variables

The focus is on ecological problems, particularly different kinds of resource scarcity, but social and psychological theories are also tested with both bivariate and multivariate analyses. Because unpredictable disasters are such a strong predictor in nonstate societies, the authors theorize that war may mostly be caused by a fear of nature.

  6. Frequency of warfare will be related to parental hostility, overall parental warmth, father-infant sleeping proximity, and socialization for aggression in boys in late childhood (632)Ember, Carol R. - War, socialization, and interpersonal violence: a cross-cultural study, 1994 - 5 Variables

    This study explores several correlates of interpersonal violence. Multiple regression analysis suggests that socialization for aggression in boys in late childhood is the strongest predictor of higher rates of homicide and assault. Path analysis suggests that socialization for aggression is a consequence, not a cause, of war.

  7. When included in a model testing the relationship between frequency of warfare, natrual disasters, and socialization for mistrust, food producing will be a significant predictor of frequency of warfare (11).Ember, Carol R. - Violence in the ethnographic record: results of cross-cultural research on w..., 1997 - 4 Variables

    This paper reviews the results of the author's cross-cultural studies of war and aggression and their implications for prehistory.

  8. Corporal punishment of children will be more likely where warfare frequency is "more than rare" (615).Ember, Carol R. - Explaining corporal punishment of children: a cross-cultural study, 2005 - 6 Variables

    This article tests various explainations for corporal punishment of children, including social complexity, a societal culture of violence, and whether help in child rearing is available. Analysis suggests that corporal punishment may be a parent's way to prepare children for societal power inequality.

  9. Individual and socially organized aggression will be positively associated with frequency of war (628).Ember, Carol R. - War, socialization, and interpersonal violence: a cross-cultural study, 1994 - 3 Variables

    This study explores several correlates of interpersonal violence. Multiple regression analysis suggests that socialization for aggression in boys in late childhood is the strongest predictor of higher rates of homicide and assault. Path analysis suggests that socialization for aggression is a consequence, not a cause, of war.

  10. In a multiple regression analysis comparing the strongest predictors of violence, warfare will be a significant predictor of homicide/assault (15).Ember, Carol R. - Violence in the ethnographic record: results of cross-cultural research on w..., 1997 - 6 Variables

    This paper reviews the results of the author's cross-cultural studies of war and aggression and their implications for prehistory.
