Abstract

The coup d'etat which took place in Brazil at the beginning of April can best be understood as fitting into a number of intricately interlocking patterns of relations and events. First, there is the pattern of civilian-military relations in Brazilian national life. Second, there is the pattern of political trends in Latin American politics. And finally, there is the pattern of developing United States policy toward Latin America. Although these are all aspects of a single whole, it will be useful to consider them separately.
