Quite possibly the best mix of theory and practice I've ever encountered in a book on the guts of programming languages. It provides a mathematical foundation without getting bogged down in self-congratulation or formality and focuses on practical compilers and features of languages we use, including foundations of object oriented inheritance and how it's implemented. Also provding a look at the historical P-machine, virtual machine design and chapters on functional programming that are widely ...more
