This chapter describes the period of unrest following the July 19 insurrection as it swept across the nation. All hopes of negotiation with the insurgent generals gone, a new Republic was formed under José Giral for the purposes of combating the rebel forces. But it was a government in name only—one that presided over its rapid dissolution under the double impact of military rebellion and social revolution. As the state collapsed, the Republic found itself without an army, a police force, and many of its administrative officials. Control of vital elements of state power—such as its economic, cultural, financial, religious, judicial, and transportation sectors—were seized by workmen's committees or by local bodies, further depriving the government of authority as it struggled to make its presence felt amidst the chaos.

Keywords:   José Giral, Third Republic, military rebellion, state power, workmen's committees, local governing bodies, state collapse
