After the revolution in Egypt in January 2011 took place, Hosni Mubarak was excluded from power and in free elections, Islamists and especially, Muslim Brotherhood could, with majority of votes, place on top of political power, but soon, the state and other social forces confronted each other, and finally, the army as the most organized and cohesive institution in Egyptian society, played the cards well and as a national savior, with implementation of the coup, pre-empted all power sources. It appears that such a situation has many compatibilities with praetorian society considered by Samuel Huntington. Main characteristics of such a society is the confrontation and direct conflict of politicized and belligerent social groups, that reject any kind of negotiation and compromise and don`t accept any agreed-upon procedure or common mechanism to dispute the resolution. Accordingly, the present study, using the conceptual and theoretical framework of Samuel Huntington Praetorianisms, is aimed to explain the political violence in the country after the revolution and also, describe the structural characteristics of Egypt society and the kind of relations and political action of its groups and social forces which try to exclude each other from the politics in Egypt.
