The purpose of the study is twofold: (1) to bring into objective focus the actual problems many new nations of America now face--i.e. those attendant to the process of building rapidly modern unitary societies from previously segmented, illiterate and primarily tradition-oriented populations; and (2) to broaden and develop social science theory to deal with this relatively new phenomenon. Morocco is our case study. It is immediately recognized that in order for any society, in sociological terms, to exist as an on-going system, it must have a minimal degree of social integration. The concept of social integration has been developed and defined in the context of already established societies. It implies, of course; that a social structure exists and that part of that social structure is devoted to integrative functions [TRUNCATED]
