The Democide-Power Causal Nexus

Dimensions of Democide,
Power, Violence, and Nations



Here I have put on one page references to the dimensions (or factors) delineated in the various studies deposited on this site. These are of interest to the quantitative social scientist, for they show the distinct patterns of covariation in democide, politics, etc., and thus the possible independent lines of causation. When put together these dimensions well establish the supreme role of power in predicting democide and the democratic peace.
