Cookbooks that explain the entire process?

For me, the most satisfying part of learning a new recipe is figuring out why a particular step is needed. Are there any recipe books that explain the function of each step and ingredient?

(Incidentally, does anyone know why most pie recipes call for dotting the top of the filling with butter?)
