The first book that analyzes coups in the period of the Transition and democratic consolidation (1975-1986).
The Armed Forces were the only body capable of stopping the process of political change between 1975 and 1982. However, the military that acted in the operations that occurred from 1977 onwards did not do so alone, but had the support of political groups in favor of reordering the democratic system or destroying it. After the triumph of the PSOE, these groups disappeared, and only a few residual ones remained, which acted between 1982 and 1986. Despite employing new methods such as terrorism, they were nonetheless incapable of endangering the democratic system.
