Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 1975 coup d' tat in Chad that terminated Tombalbaye's government received an enthusiastic response in the capital N'Djamena. F lix Malloum emerged as the chairman of the new Supreme Military Council (Conseil Sup rieur Militaire or CSM) and the first days of the new regime were celebrated as many political prisoners were released. His government included more Muslims from northern and eastern Chad, but ethnic and regional dominance still remained very much in the hands of southerners.The successor government soon overturned many of Tombalbaye's more odious policies. For example, the CSM attempted to distribute external drought relief assistance more equitably and efficiently, devised plans to develop numerous economic reforms, including reductions in taxes and government expenditures, and abandoned some of the more oppressive measures used to encourage cotton production.
