Abstract:

The study has three goals first, to find the dimensions of variation among nations with respect to their dyadic conflict behavior over a continuous series of months and to compare these month-to-month dimensions with dimensions derived through employing an annual time frame secondly, to ascertain the groups of nation dyads that exhibit similar patterns of conflict behavior over time and thirdly, to discuss the profiles of dyadic conflict behavior for each of the groups delineated in the analysis. Five conflict dimensions were delineated in this over time analysis. Seven groups of similarly behaving dyads were delineated. Groups corresponding to cold war conflict, routine military activity, crisis behavior and third world discontent with major powers were delineated in profile analysis. Author
