I read an interesting book review this morning. The book is called Tangled Webs: How False Statements Are Undermining America. "Perjury [is] becoming the norm among affluent criminals and threatens legal system, says Pulitzer winner James B. Stewart."
His book tells of how lies and perjury (lying under oath) increasingly feature at the highest levels of business, media, politics, sports and culture, and in particular tells the stories of Martha Stewart, Scooter Libby, Bernie Madoff and Barry Bonds. I'm feel sure the subject matter would interest most people who follow current affairs, though obviously Americans especially.
