About 386BSD From the Inside Out (Volume 5)

Unlike the first four Source Code Secrets volumes, which cover all the gory details of implementation from the bottom-up (“Gray’s Anatomy” approach), Volume 5 will be more like a traditional operating systems text that explains top-down, in the abstract, how various levels and modules of an operating system form an organic whole.

The special power of this theory book, however, will lie in its unique ability to cross-reference the conceptual material with the implementation details as fully described in the preceding four volumes.
