Personally, I think the intro should cover the sub area that you are working on. Something that will get to speed the next person who wants to continue your work.
THe best person to speak to would be your supervisor or advisor.

I had a 4 page introduction which basically covered the impact of my work on the field and then I had a 60 page review of literature that explained mostly all the things the reader needs to know to understand the work that I did.

if you're writing introductions for each chapter individually i'd recommend you not to expand too much in the general introduction, since you'll be giving more detail in each chapter.
if i'm not mistaken you are in chile right? good luck with the writing up!

written by Lee Wai Ying; Laina Ho; Mary Ng En Tzu.
This is the text book for the last year graduate students who come from non-English spoken country in my university.
Mainly teach the students how to write paper and thesis.
