Quick answer:
A contemporary source with lots of references is
Steven S. Muchnick:
"Advanced Compiler Design & Implementation"
Morgan Kaufmann 1997
~1000 pages, hard cover
$89,95 (suggested retail price)
ISBN 1558603204
- omits the basics of parsing etc., focuses on optimization
- thick but well-structured
[Yup, that's one of the books in the FAQ. It's not bad. -John]
