This textbook offers a deep understanding of the essential concepts of
programming languages. The approach is analytic and hands-on. The text
uses interpreters, written in Scheme, to express the semantics of many
essential language elements in a way that is both clear and directly
executable. It also examines some important program
analyses. Extensive exercises explore many design and implementation
