Drawing on insights gleaned from the July Revolution, this concluding chapter compares the transition phase now underway in Egypt to the events of 1952. As the popular uprising against Hosni Mubarak gained momentum, a riveting public discourse took shape in Egypt that compared the revolution of July 1952 to that of January 2011. In both cases, a strongman’s ouster raised hopes among many Egyptians that a new beginning was just around the corner. In addition, each of the attendant transition phases were undergirded by the taking of extraordinary measures, including suspending the constitution, disbanding parliament, and summarily arresting thousands of people. Many of the detainees were ultimately prosecuted by military and special courts. The chapter narrates the trials of President Hosni Mubarak and President Mohamed Morsi.

Keywords:   January 2011 revolution, popular uprising, military courts, the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, Hosni Mubarak, Mohamed Morsi
