The Collapse of the Spanish Republic, 1933-1936

Yale University Press

This chapter, which examines the establishment of the new government, along with its goals and the outbreak of corruption scandals, argues that president Alcalá Zamora himself was the main obstacle to more effective government. Despite his laudable goal of defending a centrist and liberal democratic regime, Zamora possessed a kind of messianic complex, a gigantic ego which led him to think that he possessed the right to manipulate every aspect of government as much as he wished.

Keywords:   Spain, political history, government reorganization, corruption, coalition government, Alcalá Zamora
