Abstract: The article explores the durability of Egypt's republican executive leadership and examines the strategies of survival employed by the three presidential regimes of the country from 1954 to 2000. The presidential regimes of Gamal 'Abd al-Nasser, Anwar al-Sadat and Husni Mubarak were compared. Strategic patterns of each president were identified under the concepts of containment, repression and external diversion. The article further shed light on the strategies of political survival which are common in other developing countries. It gave a view on the effect of these survival strategies on plans for change and development.
