List processing

J.M. Foster. List Processing. Macdonald and Co. 1967.

A slim volume discussing list processing with reference to Lisp and to other list processing systems of the time (including some libraries embedded into Fortran).

The most fascinating part of the book is its bibliography, which references a lot of papers that have disappeared from the collective memory of computer science, but whose implications were profound.

(Part of the series An annotated Lisp bibliography.)
