Editing through tools is easy. I want some good tips or websites which teach the relation ship between scenes which are cut and joined, i.e. the camera angle, sound overlap, dialog, how to bring about the desired mood and effect to give the correct message by using right camera cuts techniques.

If you're cutting with Final Cut Pro, check out Jerry Hofmann's book on editing with FCP 4. He gives as much instruction on the "why" you're making the edit as he does on the technical info about the program.

You essentially cut a short film along with Jerry and it's a very good all around editing book.

The book "In the Blink of an Eye" by Walter Murch is a great source for the info you are looking for.

Actually, yes - anything by Walter Murch. Google "Murch" and "transitions" to find some great articles and conversations. (There was a terrific explanation of transitions and their various uses in the recent A.C.E. Magazine, "Cinema Editor"... http://www.ace-filmeditors.org/newace/mag_Main.html)

Also, one of the best-written books in a while, "Behind The Seen: How Walter Murch Edited Cold Mountain" (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0735714266/103-5853685-234382...).

While Murch may not be everyone's cuppa joe, he has some very well-polished, plain-English explanations.
