Actually I should have worded it "Assuming that this book will be the NEXT in
A LONGER series of various efforts to make the case for a science of
memetics". Since Aaron Lynch and Richard Brodie have both written books on
memes. This is just Susan Blackmore's first book - which is what I was
actually referring to by this statement, but I realized after the fact that
this may not have been clear.
