This book explores the administration of Iran under Mongol rule through taxation and monetary policy. A consistent development is evident only from abundant numismatic material, from the conquest of Samarqand by Chingiz Khan to the reign of the penultimate ruler, Uljaytu. In many cases, the individuals responsible for initiating and conducting the policies can be identified from the histories or remarks of the mint master. The structure of the empire is clearly demarcated by mint production, coin styles and type of metal. This illuminates many controversial historical points such as the meaning and function of an Il-khan and the establishment of the Toluid dynasty under Hulagu. The Mongols broke the crust of an inflexible and archaic Islamic monetary tradition that had hampered economic development by encouraging extensive trade and the sciences (especially astronomy and higher mathematics) through determined and always pragmatic programmes.

Nothing is more blatantly political than the way legislative leaders gerrymander districts every ten years to protect their friends, punish their enemies and keep their party in control. Republicans are euphoric that their November 2010 takeover of state governments will give them the opportunity to redraw district lines in a way that will make it difficult for Democrats over the next decade to regain control of the U.S. House of Representatives and the state legislatures they lost .It doesn't have to be that way. Fifteen states entrust redistricting to bipartisan or independent commissions, including California, where voters expanded the power of their new tripartite panel after a referendum pitted Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.But even the best-intentioned reforms can get snarled in politics:In the name of competition, Iowa's panel drew lines that knocked 67 incumbents out of their districts, but most of the incumbents moved and won anyway. A Republican who put region ahead of party became known as "the most hated man in Idaho." And Illinois bosses would rather have a 50-50 chance to gerrymander than a bipartisan compromise , so they draw "the winning gerrymander" out of Lincoln's stovepipe hat. Honest.Reform commissions can produce surprising results, however. New Jersey succeeded in unpacking thousands of minority voters from urban districts by arguing that minority candidates could win in the suburbs. Montana created legislative districts that finally gave the Sioux and Crow representation. And Connecticut created a perfectly competitive district for a Democratic and a Republican incumbent after the state lost a seat in the 2001 Census. This book examines the experience of the 15 bipartisan or independent redistricting commissions that drew maps in the 2001 cycle, examines the six mixed-model backup commissions with partisan majorities, and looks ahead at California's new tripartite reform commission.
