The journalist Heidi Holland met Robert Mugabe 30 years ago, when he'd just been released from prison and she gave him dinner at her house. She met him again, in 2007, for a formal interview with him in State House in Harare. She fills in the intervening years, during which Mugabe turned from a freedom fighter into a tyrant, with a series of in-depth interviews with those who've known him best: his brother Donato, his early Zanu colleague Edgar Tereke, Lord Carrington, and others.

For the first time since I'd been in Zimbabwe, I passed two women busy sweeping litter from a street corner as I made my way to work. It seemed a minor miracle, given that most basic civic services had broken down. There had been no refuse collection for months; and the water and sewerage system in many areas of the country had stopped functioning altogether.

Fears are mounting in Zimbabwe for the lives of more than 40 opposition officials and human rights activists who have been abducted as part of a renewed crackdown by the regime in Harare. At least two more members of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change have disappeared in the past week, along with a freelance investigative reporter.

Is the alliance of forces that has kept Robert Mugabe in power finally starting to crack? For more than a decade now Zimbabweans have watched their once-prosperous country slide into penury and decay. Their government's mismanagement has brought hunger, disease, plunging life-expectancy, joblessness and hyperinflation to a land that was at one time the breadbasket of Africa. As the months and years have passed, and Mr Mugabe secured his power by fair means or foul, one could only marvel at people's forbearance. Every forecast that Zimbabwe could survive not a moment longer was disproved, as people somehow found a way.
