Patterns of Conflict: Technical Manual

A number of original techniques with broad application in the social sciences are developed in War: Patterns of Conflict. This companion volume contains the supporting material and computer programs for those techniques and the instruction for their use. It includes simple and compound agreement analysis, a logarithmic scaling technique for compound data, and a revised edition of the conflict data codebook.

Patterns of Conflict

"In this book," wrote the late Quincy Wright, "Richard Barringer has made a contribution to the study of international conflict by devising a new method of classifying empirical data to characterize conflict and its stages of development, with results of considerable predictive value."
