James B. Stewart's book, Tangled Webs, goes behind the scene of the trials of media and homemaking entrepreneur Martha Stewart, White House political adviser Lewis “Scooter” Libby, home-run king Barry Bonds, and Wall Street money manager Bernard Madoff.  Stewart reveals the consequences of the perjury epidemic that has swept the U.S. which undermines the foundation of American courts.  The author explores age-old tensions between greed and justice, selfishness and public interest, and loyalty, duty, and betrayal. 

Stewart's other books include Heart of a Soldier, Blind Eye and Blood Sport and Den of Thieves. A former Page One editor at the Wall Street Journal, Stewart won a Pulitzer Prize in 1988 for his reporting on the stock market crash and insider trading.  He is a regular contributor to SmartMoney and the New Yorker.
