Design of the Unix Operating System by Marice J. Bach. It is by far the
best book I have seen in its class. Absolutely brilliant. I wouldn't
call it "little". After you finish reading it, you will be in a position
to write your own OS ;-) The best part of this book is that although when
I cam accross it in 1993, I had no CS theory background. Yet it made
clear to me all the reasons for the file-systems, why you couldn't
decrease directory size, how systems call are implemented, etc.
US retail price is $70, I used to have an Indian Edition. Please note
that this is an SVR4 book, c 1987. You will NOT get a feel of Linux APIs,
but you will be able to grasp kernel concepts.
