Description - Concepts, Techniques, and Models of Computer Programming by Peter Van Roy
Each model has its own set of techniques and each is included on the basis of its usefulness in practice. The general models include declarative programming, declarative concurrency, message-passing concurrency, explicit state, object-oriented programming, shared-state concurrency and relational programming. Specialised models include graphical user interface programming, distributed programming and constraint programming. Each model is based on its kernel language - a simple core language that consists of a small number of programmer-significant elements. The kernel languages are introduced progressively, adding concepts one by one.
