George Danezis has put together a great series of lectures on modern anonymous communications, available from his Conspicuous Communication blog here. The lectures cover

  1. Basic definitions & unconditional anonymity with DC-networks.
  2. Long-term attacks on anonymity systems (Statistical / Disclosure) and their Bayesian formulation.
  3. Mix networks and anonymity metrics.
  4. The Bayesian traffic analysis of mix networks.
  5. Low-latency anonymity with onion routing and crowds.

About 150 slides of material.
