This excellent addition to the UTiCS series of undergraduate textbooks provides a detailed and up to date description of the main principles behind the design and implementation of modern programming languages.
Rather than focusing on a specific language, the book identifies the most important principles shared by large classes of languages. To complete this general approach, detailed descriptions of the main programming paradigms, namely imperative, object-oriented, functional and logic are given, analysed in depth and compared. This provides the basis for a critical understanding of most of the programming languages.
An historical viewpoint is also included, discussing the evolution of programming languages, and to provide a context for most of the constructs in use today. The book concludes with two chapters which introduce basic notions of syntax, semantics and computability, to provide a completely rounded picture of what constitutes a programming language.

"This undergraduate textbook on the principles of programming languages has many commendable aspects. It is grounded on sound principles of computing, with machines taking a central role. The authors use activation stacks and other machine-level abstractions to explain many complex ideas--such as scopes and evaluation mechanisms--in concrete terms. Furthermore, many aspects of C++, Java, and C# are covered and contrasted in substantial detail. ... In short, what the text covers, it covers well ... ." (Simon Thompson, ACM Computing Reviews, January, 2011)
"This book provides a detailed description of the main principles behind the design and implementation of modern programming languages. ... Primarily, the text is intended as a university textbook, but is also suitable for personal study of professionals who wish to deepen their knowledge of the mechanisms that lie behind the languages they use."
