The popular uprising in Egypt in 2011 surprised many and raised expectations of substantive political reform. Yet, it might have been better to exercise caution about Egypt’s post-uprising direction. As we have witnessed, there are few guarantees during a transition phase of regime change. The analysis in the following chapter underscores that the character of the post-Mubarak political outcome is largely the product of a polity snared in the capricious embrace of reactionary military elites and authoritarian legacies. It argues that the current situation, while disappointing to normative aspirations, was not wholly unexpected.
