Flashbacks, how to

I recently saw a writer asking whether flashbacks should go forward in time or backwards, and it occurred to me that I've never seen a discussion of flashbbacks.

Are there good discussions of the subject, either from the readerly or writerly point of view?

What I want from a flashback is mostly that it should be a good story in itself, and I'm amazed at how involved I can get in a flashback, even if I know how it's going to turn out.
