Abstract

It is widely known that Historical Memory plays a crucial role in any nation that wants to be regarded as democratic. A reflection on our most recent annals
contributes to promoting constitu-tional values and advocates the construction of a dialogue between the past and the present. At the same time, it provides us with an opportuni-ty to avoid the repetition of the serious mistakes made in other periods that cost the lives and free-dom of thousands of citizens. This is, in essence, the aim in our overview of this work: Represión y orden público durante la II República, la Guerra Civil y el franquismo. Una visión comparada, Aranzadi, 2019, 453 pp. (Pérez Juan, J.A y Moreno Tejada, S.) In the words of its coordinator, “pretende hablar de personas, hombres y mujeres que fueron víctimas de la represión, de la radicalización, de la intolerancia, y de la intransigencia”. To this end, this work provides a complete cross-sectional “análisis del marco jurídico y político  vigente en España durante la primera mitad del siglo XX, y en particular, de las acciones de represión desplegadas en la época para el mantenimiento del denominado orden público”.
