  Jack Katz's Handbook of Audiology deals in some detail the aspects of 
masking thresholds and principles.   

One other text book I can think of from a psychophysical point of view is
"Psychophysics of Audition" by Brian C.J. Moore.  There is a chapter on the 
psychophysical aspects of masking if u want some technical details!

Again,  any other basic Audiology Testing books should give sufficient insights
into the masking thresholds.  Hope this helps...
