Even though the inquiry about constitutional revolution have been always an interesting idea but till now there isn’t any severe attempt to explaining this important historical event at least in Persian language. Since, here we try to analyze the economical-social causes of constitutional revolution in the form of Chalmers-Johnson’s functionalist theory.
This theory that built upon social balance and solidarity climes that if the social system can’t keep its balance in environmental conditions and new phenomena, faced with crisis and finally leads to revolution. We can see this imbalance in Qajar age on the one hand in confrontation with west, and on the other hand new reforms leads to an opposition between native customs and western values, and following that, the old order disintegrated.
