A draft of text book for Computer Science I, covering CS1 topics in a generic manner using psuedocode with supplemental parts for specific languages. Computer Science is not programming. Programming is a necessary skill, but it is only the beginning.
by John Whitington - Coherent Press
Using examples from the publishing industry, Whitington introduces the fascinating discipline of Computer Science to the uninitiated. Chapters: Putting Marks on Paper; Letter Forms; Storing Words; Looking and Finding; Typing it In; Saving Space; etc.

This text teaches programming and presents some fundamental principles of computer science, especially algorithm design. The programming in this course is based on the language ML and mostly concerns the functional programming style.
by Carol Critchlow, David Eck - Hobart and William Smith Colleges
The book covers material on logic, sets, and functions that would often be taught in a course in discrete mathematics. The second part covers automata, formal languages, and grammar that would ordinarily be encountered in an upper level course.
