American Hero by Larry Beinhart. This book was the basis for Wag The Dog. While it is fiction, it has a wonderful account of how memetics works. Beinhart creates a beuatiful picture of how spin doctors (meme wranglers) work in modern society, on many different levels and through many size worlds.

It is a good read.
