Abstract:

During the quarter a manuscript on National Attributes and Behavior was completed for publication, and a proposal to analyze the relationship between political systems and war was submitted to NSF for consideration. Results emerging from analyses show that both over time and space show that a nations amount of foreign conflict is highly correlated with its power but independent of its wealth, politics, transactions, trade, and alignment. Moreover, about half of a nations dyadic foreign behavior can be explained by its socio-economic and political distances from other nations. This holds true for such diverse nations as the U.S., U.S.S.R., China, Cuba, Brazil, India, Egypt, Israel, Poland, and Indonesia.
