Some of Social Change of Iraqi Society underAmerican OccupationA Field Study in the Frame of Sociology

Abstract

Social knowledge is formed in the light of the variables of civilization, past, present, future, cultural contact, production power and philosophy.
All these variables work together to form a cultural pattern that distinguishes the behavior of the society it stems from. However , it is not necessary that all these variables work together or have equal role in knowledge formation . One variable may has priority over others for one reason or another.
Undoubtedly, Iraq accupation on April 4th 2003 caused an extreme change in the political map. There also followed plans to change the social and demographic structure. All these variables come
with a change in the social knowledge. This was reflected on the social structure of the Iraqi society. To show this social change, the study came out in three sections . The first represents the theoretical background of the research. It includes the research problem, its importance, aim, samples, methodology, tools and fields.
As for the second section, it includes a theoretical approach to the methodology of knowledge sociology and social change in the Iraqi society.
The third section, however, tackles the axes of the Iraqi social structure and social change at the onset of American invasion of Iraq.
Each of the axis of the social structure ends up with a summary of the most important results it comes up with. The research ends up with a conclusion that includes a comment on Ocobron theory and the reasons behind social change in its light.
