Abstract The paper discusses Egypt’s grand strategy in the New Kingdom, focussing on the Near East. Considering that Egypt’s safety policy changed dramatically in comparison to previous times, we have the evidence of frequent military campaigns which result in the question of how to deal with conquered territories and how to manage the newly gained influence. I want to show which methods the Egyptians used to keep and extend their control or influence. Thereby I use theoretical approaches such as the ones proposed by Quincy Wright in his book On War. Moreover, the sources enable us to detect political means to avoid constant warfare which would overstrain Egypt’s resources. Theoretical approaches help to reconstruct Egypt’s grand strategy, showing her political and military aims and the instruments to put them into reality. The results are connected with exemplary strategic models in order to establish a pattern of the grand strategy in the New Kingdom.
