JavaFX 2.0 by Example is the only published book I know of http://www.apress.com/9781430242574, I have not read it, so I don't know about it's quality. The title would not seem to apply to "take an academic approach to learning JavaFX 2.0 from its fundamentals up to more advanced topics".
I know you don't want unreleased books mentioned, but still . . . Pro JavaFX 2.0 platform is probably the most promising and closest to what you are looking for http://www.apress.com/9781430268727 (due to be released next month). You may be able to get an early release electronic copy for review if you contact one of the authors (author blog here: http://learnjavafx.typepad.com/weblog/).
