UML Distilled is your best bet. Search Javaranch Bunkhouse or Amazon for more.

Have a look at Learning OOP and UML.

Also search this forum for "UML book" and browse through the topics.

[EDIT: updated search URI]

I like "Applying UML and Patterns" from Craig Larman and "Essential UML" from Martin Fowler.

For the beginner, I highly recommend "Java for UML programmers" by Robert C. Martin. It tells you only the absolutly essential things and doesn't bother you with all the details that in ninety percent of all cases you shouldn't care about anyway. It has tons of code examples, something other books often lack, and also puts a big focus on creating a good design (instead of just a correct UML diagram of a potentially shoddy design). And it's not too big...

After that, I'd probably go with "UML distilled", mostly because I like Fowler's style - although I don't know too much about the alternatives.
