The JavaRanch Bunkhouse lists several books on threads with reviews. The book mentioned most often seems to be Java Threads by Scott Oaks and JavaRanchs own Henry Wong.

Ulf,

Maybe I just read too fast. Or maybe it is just the silly season. But for a moment, I thought the U.S. appealed the Thirteenth Amendment...

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:

Java, Concurrency in Practice:
http://www.amazon.com/Java-Concurrency-Practice-Brian-Goetz/dp/0321349601/ref=pd_sim_b_3/104-1540718-5387915

The Java Programming Language, 4th Ed:
http://www.amazon.com/Java-TM-Programming-Language-4th/dp/0321349806/sr=1-1/qid=1168045869/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/104-1540718-5387915?ie=UTF8&s=books

Concurrent Programming in Java 2nd Ed(the 3rd edition is coming out soon I believe):
http://www.amazon.com/Concurrent-Programming-Java-TM-Principles/dp/0201310090/sr=1-2/qid=1168046236/ref=sr_1_2/104-1540718-5387915?ie=UTF8&s=books

Note: If you are already familiar with Java basics, consider checking out the classic "Effective Java" (Bloch, 2001.)
Effective Java:
http://www.amazon.com/Effective-Java-Programming-Language-Guide/dp/0201310058/ref=pd_sim_b_2/104-1540718-5387915

I hope the above isn't too inundating
