    The Egyptian revolution of 2011 confounded observers who assumed that Mubarak and the generals would stand or fall together. Kandil delves into the history of modern Egypt to explain why this view was mistaken; he shows how the armed forces took advantage of events and sets the January 25 Revolt in the context of six decades of socio- political transformation and the power struggle between the military, the security services and the political apparatus.
