    It would be worth looking also at Robert Aunger. As well as writing 'The Electric Meme' he's also edited a very useful collection, 'Darwinizing Culture' - although come to think of it that might take you into broader controversies about the status of memetics than you're wanting for an introductory presentation. Maybe save 'Darwinizing Culture' for later!
