From the Back Cover:

In this third edition of classic title, Leland Beck provides a complete introduction to the design and implementation of various types of system software. Stressing the relationship between system software and the architecture of the machine it is designed to support, Beck first presents the fundamental concepts and basic design of each type of software in a machine-independent way. He then discusses both machine-dependent and independent extensions to the basic concepts, and gives examples of the actual system software.
