I know there are good assembler books and there are good C/C++ books, but is there a book which maps the two programming languages/levels together?

Just get a good C book. The worst code I've ever come across was written by an assembler programmer who had taught himself C and tried to map it. – parkydr Feb 17 '13 at 18:23

You may be asking how compilers work. The latest version of the so-called "Dragon book" by Aho and Ullman is probably still the most popular textbook on compiler construction. I read the original in the early 80s. I liked this book and found it very useful and helpful to me in what turned into a career building compilers.

For a more down-to-earth look at compiler construction check out LCC, the code is at – vonbrand Feb 17 '13 at 19:14
