States have killed more people than have rebellions, but we know very little about what factors influence this genocide. Why do states kill? In this provocative and chilling book, William Stanley demonstrates that the Salvadoran military state was essentially a protection racket. It offered protection to the elites from civilian uprising and in return received a concession to govern. This protection took the form of wide-scale murder. As Stanley puts it, "State violence was a currency of relations between state and non-state elites."
There are valuable lessons in this book for all those concerned with state-sponsored terror. It indicts the United States for having strengthened the might of the Salvadoran military. It challenges conventional wisdom about governments and repression and shows state-sponsored violence as much more than just a response to opposition.
LDAP has become the de-facto standard for storing and accessing information in enterprises. Despite its widespread adoption, developers often struggle when it comes to using this technology effectively. The traditional JNDI approach has proven to be painful and has resulted in complex, less modular applications. The Spring LDAP Framework provides an ideal alternative.
