L’appel à l’ennemi : l’anticommunisme à l’École supérieure de guerre au Brésil (1954-1964)

Abstract : This article aims at analyzing the importance of anticommunism in the doctrines devised at the Superior War College. The focus is on the conferences given by judges, academics and psychiatrists who saw Communism as a political doctrine and a threat to national security. Opposing Communism helped pull these elites together and shaped the central axis of the new doctrine that both civilians and military officers were elaborating at the Superior War College. Denouncing Soviet methods on the one hand, while admiring revolutionary ardor on the other, their portrayal of the enemy allowed them to give legitimacy to the political and military use of psychological weapons.
