"Regime change" is the replacement of one regime with another. Use of the term dates to at least 1925. Regime change can occur through conquest by a foreign power, revolution, coup d'état or reconstruction following the failure of a state. Regime change may replace all or part of the state's existing institutions, administrative apparatus, bureaucracy and other elements. (via Freebase)
