  1. Exclusive mother-child sleeping and a long postpartum sex taboo are positively associated with male initiation ceremonies in the presence of all of the following catalysts: nonmatrilocal societies, more-than-rare warfare, nonstate societies.Ember, Carol R. - Explaining male initiation ceremonies: new cross-cultural tests and a cataly..., 2010 - 6 Variables

    This article discusses two different explanations of male initiation ceremonies. Evidence is also presented that suggests that psychological conflict might strongly predict male initiation in the presence of the following catalysts: nonmatrilocal residence, nonstate political organization, and warfare.

  3. 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.

  4. The presence of non-relative caretakers will be positively associated with corporal punishment of children (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.

  8. Warfare frequency will be positively associtiated with costliness of male rites.Sosis, Richard - Scars for war: evaluating alternative signaling explanations for cross-cultu..., 2007 - 2 Variables

  9. Warfare will interfere more with male labor in horticultural societies than in intensive agricultural societies (298)Ember, Carol R. - The relative decline in women’s contributions to agriculture with intensific..., 1983 - 2 Variables

    This article presents theory and hypothesis tests that suggest that the decline of women's contribution to intensive agriculture is related to increases in fertility and domestic work associated with cereal crops. Additionally, men in agricultural societies are less likely to invest time in hunting and warfare, so their contribution of agricultural labor relative to women's increases.

  10. 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.
