If you have never encountered the term 'tort' before, it is defined by a legal dictionary as "The French for wrong, a civil wrong, or wrongful act, whether intentional or accidental, from which injury occurs to another." Tort law covers cases where, for example, if an operation leaves you incapacitated, you can sue the doctor or hospital. Awards of financial recompense for the for damages and suffering caused can vary widely. In 2005, a campaign was under way to impose a cap on the payouts in such cases in Illinois, and was a central issue in the race for a position on the Illinois Supreme Court. The film illustrates how a seemingly domestic issue can have wider implications, as various corporations and interest groups engage in unsavory practices that reach far beyond Illinois

A history of Christianity by Paul Johnson( Book )
31 editions published between 1976 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 45 libraries worldwide
First published in 1976, Paul Johnson's exceptional study of Christianity has been loved and widely hailed for its intensive research, writing, and magnitude'"a tour de force, one of the most ambitious surveys of the history of Christianity ever attempted and perhaps the most radical" (New York Review of Books). In a highly readable companion to books on faith and history, the scholar and author Johnson has illuminated the Christian world and its fascinating history in a way that no other has. Johnson takes off in the year 49 with his namesake the apostle Paul. Thus beginning an ambitious quest to paint the centuries since the founding of a little-known 'Jesus Sect', A History of Christianity explores to a great degree the evolution of the Western world. With an unbiased and overall optimistic tone, Johnson traces the fantastic scope of the consequent sects of Christianity and the people who followed them. Information drawn from extensive and varied sources from around the world makes this history as credible as it is reliable. Invaluable understanding of the framework of modern Christianity'and its trials and tribulations throughout history'has never before been contained in such a captivating work
