Revolutions are difficult to understand and almost impossible to predict. Egypt’s 2011 revolt was no exception. The military’s abandonment of Mubarak – a turning point for the revolt- confounded many observers who assumed  that the leader and the generals stood or fell together. Hazem Kandil presents the revolution as the latest episode in an ongoing power struggle, between the three components of Egypt’s authoritarian regime: the military, the security services and the political apparatus.
