Learning the UNIX Operating System, Fourth Edition
The C programming language soon spread beyond Unix, and is now ubiquitous in systems and applications programming. Early Unix developers were important in bringing the concepts of modularity and reusability into software engineering practice, spawning a "software tools" movement.
Over time, the leading developers of Unix and programs that ran on it established a set of cultural norms for developing software, norms which became as important and influential as the technology of Unix itself; this has been termed the Unix philosophy.
The Unix policy of extensive on-line documentation and for many years ready access to all system source code raised programmer expectations, and contributed to the launch of the free software movement. Linux distributions , consisting of the Linux kernel and large collections of compatible software have become popular both with individual users and in business.

USL v. Linux and BSD are increasingly filling the market needs traditionally served by proprietary Unix operating systems, as well as expanding into new markets such as the consumer desktop and mobile and embedded devices. Because of the modular design of the Unix model, sharing components is relatively common; consequently, most or all Unix and Unix-like systems include at least some BSD code, and some systems also include GNU utilities in their distributions.
In a interview, Dennis Ritchie voiced his opinion that Linux and BSD operating systems are a continuation of the basis of the Unix design, and are derivatives of Unix:  I think the Linux phenomenon is quite delightful, because it draws so strongly on the basis that Unix provided.
Linux seems to be the among the healthiest of the direct Unix derivatives, though there are also the various BSD systems as well as the more official offerings from the workstation and mainframe manufacturers.

This isn't so much a history of Unix as a look at its impact on programmers and computer users. It has lots of information on Unix books, periodicals, conferences, user groups and publically available software.
Its only deficiency is that it is now slightly dated.This book is specifically designed for those who are new to UNIX and contains neither introductory-level condescension nor advanced-level gibberish.
Books by Maurice J. Making the command interpreter an ordinary user-level program, with additional commands provided as separate programs, was another Multics innovation popularized by Unix.
This is a classic text and a collector's item. I dono.
