Hmmm.... IMHO, a second book in compilers is not needed. It would be
better to teach your students from the current research on these areas.
Go to the journals like ACM TOPLAS, conferences, etc. and find about a
dozen papers of interest.
This would allow your students to see what is currently going on in
research. It takes away much of the structure that books tend to give
towards a course. Thus, the students are forced to learn differently.
