 The Arabist » “I was president of Egypt”
In fact, Nasser was the strongman behind the coup and Naguib, who had been the head of the army under the monarchy, took on the post to assure a smooth transition.
Naguib resembles those weak Arab military strongmen seen in Syria and Iraq in the 1950s — most of them coming out of the old system and with their “class interests” associated with the bourgeoisie rather than the petty middle class.
When he was released (in 1970, I think) from his house arrest, Naguib wrote a book titled “I was president of Egypt.” I always thought that title was full of pathos, as if Naguib had to remind people, in the context of Nasser’s megalomaniac personality cult, that he had been president.
