No offense meant, but HF book doesn't cover any of those topics in depth. No doubt it is a good book to start with, but that's it.

If you are very serious about those topics, then you are never gonna find a single book which discuss everything in depth.

I'm not much aware of swing, but I would recommend Java Threads by Oaks & Wong, and Java Generics and Collections by Neftalin & Wadler.

However, still, if you want a single book for all these, then I would (highly) recommend Core Java - Volume I & II (again, its a set of 2 books ) by Horstmann & Cornell.

I hope this helps.

Agree about Horstmann and Cornell.
Java Concurrency in Practice by Brian Goetz et al.
Effective Java by Joshua Bloch
Java Puzzlers by Bolch and Gafter

Only if I correct the spelling error: Bloch not Bolch. Sorry.

And no it isn’t a Swing book.

I guess there is a 2008(or 2009) version of that book. Its a really nice book.

I haven't checked myself, but read somewhere that there is Java 6 version for this book which discusses generics issue at great depth.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
