Help please - can anyone recommend a good textbook on compilers for parallel

I know of the existence of 4 titles -

Gelernter and Nicolau: Languages and compilers for parallel computing (Pitman)

Polychronopoulos: Parallel programming and compilers (Kluwer Academic)

Wolfe: Optimizing supercompilers for supercomputers (Pitman)

Zima and Chapman: Supercompilers for parallel and vector computers (Addison

Can anybody recommend one of these, or any other? Preferably suitable for
someone with a background in compilers, who wants to find out about special-
purpose compilers for parallel programs, languages and machines; and
preferably directed towards solving problems generally encountered, along
Dragon book lines.

Thanks for any help.
