Thanks for following up on this. If you can get the materials I'll see if a model can be worked up for it. Its an important topic. the Wiley Companion is not the only place to publish, and there is no deadline for an eventual publication. I could see what I can do and take third authorship. In the meantime I wont list you as a potential Wiley authorship but you can always change your mind. I understand the difficulty of being swamped.

I have now rummaged through my files from 2005, and the only documentation I can offer is a list of "hits" per collection (i.e. the information we offered in the article in question, not the raw coding data). I suspect that this is not what you're after but would be happy to send it to you after checking with my colleague (who was responsible for data collection) that the version I have is indeed the accurate, final version. >> >> Best regards, >> Marcus >> >> Från: Douglas White [] >> Skickat: den 18 december 2013 19:23 >> Till: Marcus Nordlund >> Ämne: Nordlund romantic love article >> >>> >> Best Holiday Wishes, Marcus! >> >> As editor-in-chief of the Wiley Companion to Cross-Cultural Research –, book outline attached, with Chapter deadlines Jan 15 2015 - I'd like to explore the possibility that your case-by-case & variable-by-variable database might have enough overlap with regions in the Standard Cross-Cultural Sample (Murdock and White 1969) to form part of our global database (SCCS, EthnoAtlas, Foragers, etc.).

If so I would include a "regional" version of your data and SCCS regions or representatives of societies or regions, prepare the overlapping datasets for the form of modeling that includes control for Galton's problem (autocorrelation that disturbs valid inference). You have plenty of cases as listed in regional totals, so this may well be possible, especially since the basis of your codes are folktales.

Victor de Munck

Romantic Love and Sexual Behavior: Comparison of Studies (Victor C. de Munck and Janina de Munck] State University of New York at New Paltz, New Paltz, NY,

  • Invited: to try out the software on the topic with codes for Romantic Love: Victor C. de Munck Comments8 and/or Janina de Munck / Andrey Korotayev
  1. Romantic Love works as a topic because the following no do exist
  2. Rosenblatt's own codes were not published but deMunck and Korotayev DID CODE and PUBLISH the codes for THE FULL 75 societies
  3. Of the 75 deMunck and Korotayev CODED 48 were SCCS societies and these (plus their premarital and extramarital codes) can be added to SCCS
  4. William Jankowiak codes were from other studies, only a few new codes from various ethographers, for cases other than SCCS
  5. thus we can resolve the disagreement between Rosenblatt and Jankowiak with an adequate sample

   But nowhere do I find a tabulation (e.g., in table or excel-type format, rows=societies cols=variable names entries=coding categories). Could you make my life simpler and send me the table for your SCCS data on Love, etc.? We can publish it in the SCCS site or in World Cultures, it could be the basis for a chapter in the Wiley Companion we are editing.

I am not sure I can find this - for the love study most of the simple math was done on sheets of paper as there were no statistical runs. Worst they were done in word perfect 5.1 and then wp 10 and when everything was transfer to a new computer the word perfect was deleted. I di ot think we did statistical run on the other papers either. But let me take a look at hard copies I might have kept.

I also have the cross-cultural study with ethnology on extramarital affairs and women's reaction. I think that was a 2002 article. I can send that to you if you need it. I also have a wonderful (my opinion) paper on femme fatale - status fatale in Cross- cultural research. I can send that to you too.

The love paper was just present or absence coding. I will email Monika and Will on data they may still have a copy of our coding. Eliz Hill was the number expert for the perception of attraction paper. She may still have the data set - she is very good at this. I am not good with statistics and thus have recruited talented graduate students to assist me - Hill was a young post doc in psych at tulane when we did the study. Bill

Jankowiak, William; Nell, M. Diane; Buckmaster, Anne 2002. Managing Infidelity: A Cross-Cultural Perspective. Ethnology, Vol. 41, No. 1: 85-101. Abstract: Anthropologists have not systematically examined extramarital affairs. Our cross-cultural study found that within every culture men and women actively resort to mate-guarding tactics to control their mate's extramarital behavior. A person's level of interest and involvement does not change with a culture's notion of descent, level of social complexity, or the degree to which a culture is normatively permissive or restrictive in sexual matters. In effect, sexual propriety is the presumed right of both sexes. Our findings are consistent with both the sexual jealousy and the pair-bond hypotheses, which hold that every marriage or love relationship is organized around a presumption of sexual propriety. (Extramarital affair, pair bond, sexual jealousy, human universal).
