Abstract

This article argues that the extent of the Egyptian military's engagement in, or withdrawal from, the political process and its subsequent professionalism have always been a reflection of the nature of the regime it served. While it was the preeminent institution in the political process during the 1950s and 1960s, it has since the 1970s accepted a subordinate role in a presidential system that both safeguards its interests but limits its direct influence in politics.
