Specifically for Core Python Programming, Chapter 17 is
devoted completely to multithreaded programming in Python.

There is an introduction/motivation section first, followed
by a "process vs. threads" discussion, then talk about what
Python's thread model is, and then we go into a deep discus-
sion on how to use threads properly in Python.

Throughout the chapter, we use one simple example and expand
on it as our knowledge of Python threading grows.  The basics
are covered with the 'thread' module first, then we explain
why this isn't as useful or safe as the higher-level thread
support provided by the 'threading' module.  After showing
you the 3 basic ways to create threads using the
threading.Thread class, we conclude the chapter with a more
complex example using the 'Queue' module.

The link above just leads you to the chapter's code samples.

Hope this helps!
