From the Back Cover:

This text adopts the "fundamentals-first" strategy, proceeding at a steady pace through all the necessary and important basic concepts, and building up to object-oriented. programming. Students then move to using the object-oriented approach to build GUI applications and applets with exception handling, I/O, data structures, internationalization, multithreading, multimedia, and networking. Every chapter has been completely revised, malting for concise reading that is engaging, and at the same tune, easy to understand. Suited for beginning and advanced students from two-semester first-year programming courses to one-semester courses in Java as a second language. This book has also been used in short training courses for experienced programmers.
