Studying Your own People

I am seeking help from list members. Does anyone know of any books or
papers that deal with the problems of conducting field work among one's own
people? I am interested in this as both a source of practical advice for
myself, as well as for readings to include in a course I am designing on
the topic. Also, any examples of ethnographies by ethnographers who are
insiders ("auto-ethnography"?) would be appreciated.

Thanks, Martin Cohen
