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. A former Wall Street Journal reporter and editor and a regular contributor to The New Yorker, Stewart is the author of multiple bestselling books. His latest book, Tangled Webs: How False Statements are Undermining America: From Martha Stewart to Bernie Madoff, analyzes America’s perjury trend, which he suggests is symptomatic of an ethical breakdown compromising the country’s judicial system as well as business, government, academia and medicine. A Harvard educated lawyer, Stewart is the Bloomberg Professor of Business Journalism at the Columbia Journalism School.
