Spirling AJPS Treaties Paper Replication
This repo includes key materials for replicating my paper,
"US Treaty-Making with American Indians: Institutional Change and Relative Power, 1784--1911", American Journal of Political Science, Vol 56, No 1, 84--97
In particular, in the <
code> folder, you will find
pca01ajpsrep.rdatawhich is the 'main' PCA scaled data for the treaties (specifically, in an object called
stringpcaAJPSrep). This was created via the file
timetrend.Rproduces the main change point results and plots. It needs access to
plot.break()should yield the relevant paper result.
Warning: there are several packages/dependencies that I haven't checked in some years (in particular, in terms of the
tm package and
kernlab). So that may require some local attention! In addition, there are various pathways that will need to be switched, though those should be self explanatory.
In addition, you will need:
- the treaty texts themselves
- metadata on the treaties
Both of those things can be found (and are documented) on Dataverse, here
