They may or may not. While the Papazian books are accessible in the
literal sense as well as language and cost, they may or may not tell
you what you need to know about this particular process. I'd say there
are a lot of books on this subject published in the UK, where country
wines and the Real Ale movement are a lot older than the widespread
American interest in home brewing. I've actually got a couple of them
stashed away someplace, from the dim dark days of being in the SCA
before Charlie Papazian.
My all time favorite brewing book is Clive La Pensee's "A Historical
Companion to House-Brewing", but it's really not a beginner's primer.
