Tangled Webs: How False Statements are Undermining America

From Martha Stewart to Bernie Madoff , America’s perjury trend is symptomatic of an ethical breakdown, compromising the country’s judicial system as well as business, government, academia and medicine. 

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and best-selling author James B. Stewart combines the skills of an investigative reporter with the style and sensibility of a novelist, examining events in finance, law and politics that shape American society. The San Francisco Examiner called him “the journalist every journalist would like to be,” and The Daily Beast named him one of the 15 “most important writers on business and economics.” 

Stewart’s New York Times column, “Common Sense,” appears weekly in the Business Day section. He provides skillful coverage of corporate America and Wall Street, often exploring the use and abuse of power at the highest levels. A former Wall Street Journal reporter and front-page editor, Stewart received two Gerald Loeb Awards, the George Polk Award for financial reporting, and a Pulitzer Prize with his deputy editor during his time at the paper. 

A regular contributor to The New Yorker, Stewart’s acclaimed cover story, “Eight Days: The Battle to Save the American Financial System,” captured behind-the-scenes dealings that prompted unprecedented government intervention following the collapse of Lehman Brothers. 

He is the author of 11 books including “Den of Thieves” (1991) and “DisneyWar” (2005), which won the Gerald Loeb Award for Best Business Book. “Heart of a Soldier” (2002) was named the “Best Book about 9/11” by Time magazine.
