The goal of this book, is to expose first-year graduate students to a wide range of programming language paradigms and issues, so that they can understand the literature on programming languages and even conduct research in this field. The book does not focus on any one language, or even on a few languages; it mentions, at least in passing, over seventy languages.

This book tries to explain a number of programming languages, covering a wide range from currently popular ones such as Java, Perl, Python, and C# to less known languages. When describing the languages, I want to find out what they have in common.
The purpose of this book is to teach Lua programming to anyone regardless of previous programming experience. It can be used as an introduction to programming, or as an introduction to Lua, for people who have programmed before but not in Lua.
