Glenn Brookshear, Benjamin/Cummings 1989
(The full title is actually "Theory of Computation, Formal Languages, Automata, and Complexity", but it didn't fit in the subject line. )
This book grants you an in-depth study of the theory of computation and serves to explain the basis of parsers, language recognition, programming languages, and complexity. Brookshear starts from ground level and works his way up proving the theory of computation based on the works of Turing and Church. The strong evidence he supplies should adds some roots to your knowledge.
This book allows you to come to grips with different computational problems. It is actually quite an eye opener that a computer can be reduced to such a simple set of mathematical formulas and diagrams, yet still remain powerful enough to compute the entire scope of problems that modern day computers do as well. I don't expect the material in this book to be outdated any time soon.
