This chapter describes the events leading to collapse of the Second Republic. It identifies the initial turning point of the Republic as the emergence of the polarization and the beginning of systematic interference with parliament and the political process, all of which commenced in 1933. The discussions include the commitment of the Socialist leadership to the Azaña coalition government; the end of the Azaña government; the elections of November 1933; the Leftist attempt to annul the electoral results; the anarchosyndicalists' insurrection of December 1933; and president Alcalá Zamora's efforts to flout the regular parliamentary system.

Keywords:   Spain, Second Republic, polarization, political process, political history, Socialists, elections, parliament, Leftists, Alcalá Zamora
