Does java actually give an indepth explanation on threads. This seems to be one of the few concepts in java I really do not understand completely.

Folks, please keep in mind that the book is for a first course in Java programming.
Threads are not covered. It is an advance topic. Try our Java certification book for that.
Java Actually is specially targeted at those who have no background in Java and to provide a solid foundation to learn OOP.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
