The Technique of Film and Video Editing is not a primer on how to edit although there are plenty of examples of how certain cuts were and are made. The book is more of an explanation and examination of the guiding principles that go into successful editing - both from a technical and historical perspective. The author describes what the goals of the editor should be including editing for narrative clarity, subtext, aesthetics, and dramatic emphasis, all showing how to evoke specific audience responses.
