If you wish to communicate with other programs across the internet, you actually don't need to learn about modems. Learning about WinSock and sockets will allow you to do network programming.   A good book for this is "Programming WinSock"
ISBN: 0-672-30594-1

If you really want to learn about modems, say because you want to write your own dialer; I'm not sure.  Generally, you just need to open the serial port and write out commands of the form:
  ATM1DT 345-6543
to dial a number.  The commands differ between different brands of modems, so you'd need to do some research into the different types of modems in use.
