Also for an introduction, consider the chapter(14) on threads in "The Java Programming Language, Fourth Edition" (Arnold et al, 2005.) Once you're familiar with Java concurrency basics, I suggest checking out the definitive guide for Java concurrency: "Java, Concurrency In Practice" (Goetz , 2006.) For a complete reference on Java concurrency, check out "Concurrent Programming in Java, 2nd Ed." (Lea, 2000.) See links to the books on Amazon below:
