This chapter introduces the history of the civilian-military regime, describes its core characteristics, outlines key tenets and ideologies used to legitimize the 1964 coup, and describes the ensuing military reign. It explores the large-scale private propaganda campaigns that paved the way for the coup between 1962 and 1964 and examines the regime's division into different military camps where propaganda was a contested field. Providing a schema for the book's organization, the introduction also briefly discusses the concept of propaganda and introduces new subcategories used throughout the study.

Keywords:   historical context, military coup, legitimization, military camps, propaganda
