Human Dominance Hierarchies

Cross reference:  Dominance Hierarchies in General 

Although a Google search for "Human Dominance Hierarchies" yielded 283,000 hits searching on all three words and 962 hits using advanced search on the three words as a phrase, I didn't find anything useful in the first 5 pages of hits which were offered as the "most relevant" from the advanced search. 

This is in stark contrast to the large number of studies of dominance hierarchies in non-humans.  What came closest was the Wiki page on Social Hierarchies, see below, or "Social stratification", as Wikipedia calls it.  Unfortunately, none of these were focused on the endocrine system.
