    Abstract:
    Spanish abstract: La Segunda República española duró no del 31 al 36, sino del 31 al 39, aunque la etapa de la guerra civil (1936-1939) tiene otro carácter, y quizá haya que llamarla a ésa la tercera república. Es normal por tanto que una historia de la guerra civil empiece con una historia de la República. Vemos aquí la perspectiva que sobre ella da Antony Beevor, un historiador de referencia, en su libro ´La Guerra Civil española´. Su izquierdismo no le impide señalar algunos problemas y desafueros del mitificado período. Otros sí. ____________________________________________________________ English abstract: The Spanish Second Republic did not last from 1931 to 1936, but from 1931 to 1939, although the civil war period (1936-1939) has a different character and should perhaps be called the Third Republic. It is normal therefore for a history of the Civil War to begin with a history of the Republic. We comment here on Antony Beevor's perspective, as a reference historian, in his book 'The Spanish Civil War'. Beevor's leftist perspective does not prevent him from pointing out some problems and political abuses of this mythified period. It does prevent him, though, from perceiving their full dimension. ________________________________________________________ Keywords: History, Spanish history, Second Republic (Spain), Politics, Revolutions, Politics, Antony Beevor, Historians, Left, Politics,
