  1. Need satisfaction in childhood will be a negative predictor of warfare frequencyEmber, 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.

  4. Warfare frequency will play a significant causal role in the etiology of interpersonal aggression (639).Ember, Carol R. - War, socialization, and interpersonal violence: a cross-cultural study, 1994 - 2 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.
