This chapter describes the eruption of military rebellion in Venezuela in 1992 due to the decline of institutionalized civilian control over the armed forces. It examines the changes that occurred in the democratic regime and its armed forces which led to attempts by military officers to displace civilian rule, including the reasons why the coup attempts failed. The chapter also illuminates the dysfunctional aspects of Venezuela's political system, such as political decline, economic austerity, and breakdown of consensual politics.

Keywords:   rebellion, Venezuela, civilian control, armed forces, democratic regime, coup, political decline, economic austerity, consensual politics
