There's a new paper up at the US Army War College Strategic Studies Institute site that looks interesting, though I haven't had a chance to give it an indepth read yet.

Funnily enough, one of the topics I was considering for my dissertation (which has since been discarded) was a study of the complications raised by the employment of indigenous allies (in various forms - from white colonists in Africa to Vietnam etc) by Western armed forces conducting counterinsurgency operations abroad. Probably lucky I hadn't decided to invest a great deal of time in it.
