  1. Games of strategy will be more prevalent in network societies (390).Peregrine, Peter N. - Political strategy and cross-cultural variation in games, 2008 - 2 Variables

    This study tests the hypotheses that games of strategy will be more prevalent in societies where political power is based on a "network strategy" and that network societies place more value on the enculturation of obedience in children. Both hypotheses are supported.

  2. Games of strategy will be more common in societies where political power is based on a "network strategy" (386).Peregrine, Peter N. - Political strategy and cross-cultural variation in games, 2008 - 4 Variables

    This study tests the hypotheses that games of strategy will be more prevalent in societies where political power is based on a "network strategy" and that network societies place more value on the enculturation of obedience in children. Both hypotheses are supported.

  3. Exclusionary political strategy will be positively associated with food-destroying disasters.Jones, Eric C. - Disaster-related food security and past general governance strategies in a w..., 2021 - 2 Variables

    This is an exploratory study comparing disaster exposure to the presence of exclusionary and corporate political leadership spanning over a 25-year focal period within each of 26 societies. Exclusionary political strategies involves the exclusion of individuals from organized societal benefits based on their relationship with the leader and the tendency to rely heavily on outside alliances for resources. Corporate political strategy tends to seek solutions from within the society and place more emphasis on collectivism. The authors' found support for their hypothesis that increased food-destroying disasters will predict with increased exclusionary leadership presence. These preliminary findings are consistent with previous research on the political adaptation during food-destroying events and the authors hope to continue to expand upon this topic.

  4. Enculturative activities that increase obedience will be more common in network societies (390).Peregrine, Peter N. - Political strategy and cross-cultural variation in games, 2008 - 3 Variables

    This study tests the hypotheses that games of strategy will be more prevalent in societies where political power is based on a "network strategy" and that network societies place more value on the enculturation of obedience in children. Both hypotheses are supported.

  5. The frequency of warfare will be negatively associated with consultation, checks on power, removal of leaders, extent of political participation, and absence of fission and positively associated with population (108).Russett, Bruce - The democratic peace in nonindustrial societies, 1993 - 7 Variables

    This study examines the relationship between political participation and warfare, suggesting that checks on power, removal of leaders, extent of political participation, and absence of fission will be negatively associated with the frequency of warfare. This hypothesis was supported with empirical analysis.

  6. Slavery will be correlated with many social features (see variable list)Hrnčíř, Václav - Archaeology of slavery from cross-cultural perspective, 2017 - 10 Variables

    The authors examine correlations between slavery and variables that can potentially be detected archaeologically. The authors do not test specific hypotheses, but aim to explore the variables in a broader sense. As such, the authors use a grounded theory approach to data analysis in order to examine trends that emerge from the data itself.

  7. Prestige of the aged is negatively correlated with severe climate and impermanent residence. It is positively correlated for aged men and women where they have property rights and influence in government. Aged women enjoy more prestige in hunting-gathering and fishing societies and in societies where matrilineal family organization prevails. Aged men have high prestige where the food supply is constant, where family organization type is patrilineal, in herding and framing societies, and where they control secret societies for the initiation of the young (79, 80)Simmons, Leo W. - The role of the aged in primitive society, 1945 - 8 Variables

    Explores 109 traits relating primarily to physical habitat, economy, political and social organization, and religion, to see how they relate to the role and treatment of the aged. General patterns were sought. Numerous ethnographic examples are given.

  8. Findings: A factor analysis of key dimensions to describe a given culture yielded 12 factors. Factor 7, "aggressive achievement behavior", loaded highly and positively on composite narcissism index; extreme bellicosity; strong or moderate emphasis on military glory; extreme boastfulness; high total positive pressure toward developing self-reliant behavior in child; warfare prevalent; incidence of personal crime above median; full-time entrepreneurs (60)Stewart, Robert A. C. - Cultural dimensions: a factor analysis of textor's a cross-cultural summary, 1972 - 10 Variables

    This article uses factor analysis to identify the key variables underlying the many cross-cultural associations reported by Textor (1967). Twelve factors are identified.

  9. There will be a relationship between slavery and social complexityHrnčíř, Václav - Archaeology of slavery from cross-cultural perspective, 2017 - 13 Variables

    The authors examine correlations between slavery and variables that can potentially be detected archaeologically. The authors do not test specific hypotheses, but aim to explore the variables in a broader sense. As such, the authors use a grounded theory approach to data analysis in order to examine trends that emerge from the data itself.

  10. There will be a positive relationship between female allies and women's resource control, political power, and prevailing attitudes about women's behavior (19).Yanca, Catherine - Female allies and female power a cross-cultural analysis, 2004 - 4 Variables

    This study tests the various ecological and social influences of women's political power and resource control in polygynous societies cross-culturally. Results suggest that women who are closer to their kin and have sisters as cowives are more likely to have resource control and power.
