Thanks to all who were so helpful with my query.  3 basic references were
suggested by almost everyone:

Elder, J.F. &. B.J. Turner.  1995.  Concerted evolution of repetitive DNA
sequences in eukaryotes. Quar. Rev. Biol. 70: 297-320; see also addendum,
ibid. 71:9 (1996).

The recent book "Molecular Evolution" by Wen-Hsung Li.

The shorter book by Li and Dan Graur on the same topic.

Also watch out for an upcoming paper in Proc. R. Soc. Lond. by Laurence D. Hurst
and Nicholas G.C. Smith titled "The evolution of concerted evolution."

Thanks again
