While early directory standards (such as X.500) offer some cross-platform functionality, none has the flexibility and widespread appeal of Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), which is fast becoming a standard part of networked computers. In Understanding and Deploying LDAP Directory Services, three experienced engineers share their knowledge of LDAP in theory and practice, effectively defining this fast-emerging technology. If you're planning to work with LDAP in any way--whether as a network manager, a software developer, or an information technology administrator--you need to read and pay attention to this book. It's the last word on LDAP as it stands today.
Since directory services aren't widely understood, this book begins by defining them and explaining what they can do for an organization. The guide then gets into the specifics of how LDAP organizes directories and handles queries. The authors go to great lengths to talk about what information to put in directories, how to validate and maintain it, and how to manage access to it. There's also lots of material on initiating LDAP services and on troubleshooting.
The aft part of this book holds special appeal for software developers, since it talks extensively about how to implement LDAP in both new and existing software. Throughout, the authors pay special attention to data redundancy, security, privacy, and the economic issues involved in an LDAP deployment. The book's real-world focus is cemented by case studies (both historical and semifictional). --David Wall --This text refers to the Textbook Binding edition.
From the Back Cover
Increasingly, organizations are using Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directories as the nerve centers of their computing infrastructures. LDAP--the Internet standard for directory information access--now provides the naming, location, and security traditionally supplied by network operating systems.
In this expanded second edition of the seminal LDAP reference, Understanding and Deploying LDAP Directory Services, three LDAP experts explain the protocol and how to apply it effectively in numerous network environments. The book begins with an introduction to directory services and LDAP, including coverage of LDAPv3 extensions and the Netscape Directory Server. It then moves on to explore:
- Designing directory services, including data sources, schema, naming, topology, replication, privacy, and security
- Deploying directory services, including establishing user access to information, implementation pitfalls, and cost analysis
- Maintaining directory services, including backup, disaster recovery, and troubleshooting
- Creating and enabling directory-service applications
- Integrating directory services
Full of practical implementation advice and real-world examples, Understanding and Deploying LDAP Directory Services, Second Edition, will give you the necessary footing to successfully implement LDAP directory-service projects.

If you want to deploy Active Directory or some other implementation, this may not be what you want as it isn't specific. However, I'd think it would be good to have for background.
It is academic in that it covers all aspects of LDAP in some degree--not getting into any specific implementation.
It does a good job in explaining what a directory is and isn't and when to use it versus a relational database.
Overall it is a great book on the topic of LDAP. More books may be needed to compliment it for specific implementations or programming.
