Have a look at this new book:

    Deitel, Harvey; Paul Deitel; Jonathan Liperi; and Ben
    Wiedermann. Python How To Program [sic].  Prentice-Hall,
    2002, ISBN 0-13-092361-3.

I think it does a reasonable job of covering the DBAPI along with
a cursory introduction to the relational model and SQL.

Full disclosure: although I had nothing to do with the writing
of this book, and have no financial interest in its success, I
was paid an honorarium for reviewing some of the chapters.
