        Subject: microelectronics of the chip & innards of the OS

I'm looking for explanatory literature on two closely related subjects:
the microelectronic design of processors and the structure of operating
systems, in both areas written for the technologically undereducated
(like me). For the former, I am looking for design at the level of the decisions 
designers make -- but explained in terms scholars in the human sciences 
would understand, perhaps with some effort. For the latter, I am especially 
interested in implementation of abstraction levels and information 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
