Does anyone know about a book that teaches about a (working) soft-core processor with full source code and assembly, preferably in VHDL?

I looked for one myself - if you find one I'd appreciate a heads-up - this is my area of interest also.
When buying VHDL/FPGA books be careful of the publication dates.
Most of the ones I've seen are more "tips and tricks" than full explanations
You may find some info of use on http://opencores.org/ but it isn't exactly a "livewire" site.

Thanks for that sujitb
a search on amazon for enoch hwang brings up a couple of interesting variants.
There's a second edition dated 2017 including interfacing that looks worth a punt.

I also discovered 'Digital design and computer architecture' by Harris, and there is also a recent version 'Digital design and computer architecture: ARM edition'. Anyone experience with either of these?

Have the non-ARM version, 2nd ed.
Has both System Verilog and VHDL code side by side.
Covers the entire territory from FETs to modern x86 (gates, logic, RTL, processor design).
Does both pipelined and non-pipelined MIPS processor.
This is the best undergraduate book I've seen.
