C++ Concurrency in Action

is the first book to market to show how to take

advantage of the new C++ Standard and how to write robust multi-threaded

applications in C++.


With the new C++ Standard and Technical Report 2 (TR2), multi-threading is

coming to C++ in a big way. TR2 will provide higher-level synchronization facilities

that allow for a much greater level of abstraction, and make programming

multi-threaded applications simpler and safer.

As a guide and reference to the new concurrency features in the upcoming C++

Standard and TR2, this book is invaluable for existing programmers familiar

with writing multi-threaded code in C++ using platform-specific APIs, or in

other languages, as well as C++ programmers who have never written multithreaded

code before.
