Understanding and Deploying LDAP Directory Services

Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is the standard for directory information access and is the underlying protocol for a variety of email systems, Web systems, and enterprise applications. LDAP enables central management of users, groups, devices, and other data, thereby simplifying directory management and reducing the total cost of ownership. Understanding and Deploying LDAP Directory Services, written by the creators of the protocol, is known as the LDAP bible and is the classic text for learning about LDAP and how to utilize it effectively. The Second Edition builds on this success by acting as an exhaustive resource for designing, deploying, and maintaining LDAP directory services. Topics such as implementation pitfalls, establishing and maintaining user access to information, troubleshooting, and real-world scenarios will be thoroughly explored.

Handbook of Research on Development and Religion

With eighty percent of the world's population professing religious faith, religious belief is a common human characteristic.

Military Chaplains as Agents of Peace

Globally, where faith and political processes share the public space with indigenous populations, religious leaders of tolerant voice, who desire to transcend the conflict that often divides their peoples, are coming forward. Affirming and enabling these leaders is increasingly becoming the focus of the reconciliation efforts of peace builders, both internally and externally to existing conflict. By way of theoretical analysis and documented case studies from a number of countries, Military Chaplains as Agents of Peace considers Religious Leader Engagement (RLE) as an emerging domain that advances the cause of reconciliation via the religious peace building of chaplains: A construct that may be generalized to expeditionary, humanitarian, and domestic operational contexts. An overview of the benefits and limitations of RLE is offered and accompanied by a candid discussion of a number of the more perplexing questions related to such operational ministry: Influence Activities, Information Gathering for Intelligence Purposes, and the Protected (Non-Combatant) Status of Chaplains.

In Sylvia Ostry: A Global Tribute professional colleagues and friends pay homage to a remarkable woman and her enormous span of activities, both academic and governmental. Ostry's interests and scholarly writings range from labour economics to development and growth, to consumer protection, external trade and payments, and eventually to the question of whether, in today's world dominated by transnational economic giants grouped into three big political economic blocs, there can be harmonious equilibrium and coherent policies designed to maintain growth, balance the labour market, and not upset the natural environment beyond repair.
