The Power Triangle

Military, Security, and Politics in Regime Change

Hazem Kandil

  • Examines the different trajectories that new regimes can take following a transition
  • Demonstrates how regime change cannot be fully comprehended without a firm grasp of the shifting balance of power within the ruling bloc.
  • Challenges the conventional view of authoritarian regimes as monolithic by analytically breaking regimes into three constituent elements--a power triangle--and attributing regime behavior to their interaction over time
  • Offers insights into the political dynamics of Iran, Turkey, and Egypt
