Such books dont sell good, because most people like "1 language - 1
book". This book should come very near to what you want:

Has separate chapters for OO/functional/logic/formal sematics/parallel.
Not too abstract but always comparing real world languages like C, C++
Pascal, SmallTalk, Lisp ..
It is a bit expensive. I found a special offer for about 25 DM.
