Conjugal Dictatorship is a book by Primitivo Mijares who, before his defection from the Marcos government in 1975, was the dictator’s chief propagandist as chairman of the Government’s Media Advisory Council. Hence, the book provides a firsthand account of the Marcos regime’s excesses, its lies and its machinations to consolidate power. Conjugal Dictatorship is a classic work that takes its readers back to the dark years of authoritarianism where graft and corruption ran rampant and human rights violations were committed with impunity. Mijares disappeared one year after publishing the first edition of this book, last seen boarding a flight from Guam to the Philippines with General Fabian Ver. His son Boyet was kidnapped and murdered a few months later. The Ateneo de Manila University Press republished the manuscript in its current edition in 2017.
