MSDN is the quintessential resource
SEE: http://msdn.microsoft.com

I sat down with a fascinating and very well written book
at Barnes & Noble last week...

C# and the .NET Platform
Andrew Troelsen, A! Press
Intertach Instructor Series (Intermediate-Advanced)
ISBN 1-59059-055-4

{C# with java background}

Programming C#, Third Edition
by Jesse Liberty

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/asin/0596004893
http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/progcsharp3/

Its got a few "Java Programmers take note" thrown in
- if you've both a firm handle on your Java you may be
in the danger of getting bored especially at the beginning.
Throws in some "very" short introductions for WinForms, ADO.NET,
ASP.NET, web services, and interop; i.e. good initial primer
(The detailed TOC is on the O'Reilly site)

However, you may feel you're not getting enough value for your $$$,
as a lot of the info can be harvested from on-line sites. However
here its in a portable format that can be perused away from the
computer (though you will want to return to it to try some stuff).

Once you're past the C#, the Java background doesn't really
come into play (you're deep into Microsoft territory now).

"web related back-end" ??? What do you mean by back-end?

web related -> ASP.NET
back-end -> ADO.NET / Enterprise Services (?)
{ASP.NET}
Essential ASP.NET With Examples in C#
by Fritz Onion (Author)
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0201760401

seems to be a favourite though at times it assumes you come
from an ASP background - not always a good one to make.

Programming Microsoft ASP.NET
by Dino Esposito (Author)

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/asin/0735619034

also seems to be popular. I haven't spend any
solid time with this one so I can't comment much, though
I liked some of Esposito's other books.
{Back-end / ADO.NET}

Microsoft ADO.NET (Core Reference)
by David Sceppa
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/asin/0735614237

is a must have. The book uses the more general
OLEDB provider - in production you should always favour
the managed provider optimized for your RDBMS.
{Back-end / Enterprise Services (COM+)}

This is a tough one. I use

COM and .NET Component Services (O'Reilly Windows)
by Juval Lwy (Author), John Osborn
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/asin/0596001037
http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/comdotnetsvs/index.html

however the main portion of the book is written from
the COM/C++ perspective - with only a single chapter,
at the end, putting things into perspective for .NET.
MS Articles reference this

C# COM+ Programming (With CD-ROM)
by Derek Beyer
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/asin/0764548352

but it has some mixed reviews.
This one looks promising (i.e. I haven't seen it)

Distributed .NET Programming in C#
by Tom Barnaby
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/asin/1590590392
http://www.apress.com/book/bookDisplay.html?bID=87

though it doesn't focus entirely on Serviced Components.
It may give you enough of a start to make
"wrestling" with the MSDN easier.

Good Luck in picking your choices!

I should mention without comment the following:

C# for Java Developers
by Allen Jones (Author), Adam Freeman
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/asin/0735617791

NET for Java Developers: Migrating to C#
by Jawahar Puvvala (Author), Alok Pota (Author)
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/asin/0672324024
http://www.aw-bc.com/catalog/academi...324024,00.html

Professional .NET for Java Developers Using C#
by Erick Sgarbi, Jack Lunn, John Timney, Poornachandra Sarang, Steve Watt
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/asin/1861007914
Since the demise of WROX, many titles have resurfaced with APRESS
http://www.apress.com

This one hasn't but I wouldn't be surprised if
"Pro .NET for Java Developers Using C#" appears once the WROX stock has
been sufficiently depleted with wholesalers - you may get one used anyway.
