Item DescriptorIn 2011, Egypt witnessed more protests than any other country in the world. This argues that the ousting of Mubarak in 2011 did not represent the culmination of a revolution or the beginning of a transition period, but rather the beginning of a revolutionary process . The upheaval played out in three uprisings against three distinct forms of authoritarian rule: the Mubarak regime and the police state that protected it, the unelected military junta known as the Supreme Council of Armed Forces, and the religious authoritarianism of the Muslim Brotherhood. This presents a new framework for analyzing the state apparatus in Egypt based on four pillars of regime support that can either prop up or press upon whoever is in power and brings together the literature on bottom-up revolutionary movements and top-down military coups, introducing the concept of a coup from below in contrast to the revolution from above that took place under Gamal Abdel Nasser.
