I see that frameworks such as Facelets, Ajax4jsf and Seam appear to be covered in the book. Why these particular frameworks?

Kevin,

Those frameworks were chosen because they are all mature, fairly popular and build on top of the Java EE 5 specification.

Additionally, Ajax4jsf makes it very easy to add Ajax capabilities to JSF applications using standard JSF components. Other ways of adding Ajax capabilities include using frameworks that are not JSF specific (such as DWR), or replacing standard JSF components with "Ajaxified" equivalent components.
