  Check forthcoming publications at Stata Press. Actually,
Cameron and Trivedi (2009) Microeconmics using Stata
touch on MCMC estimation in Chapter 4 on simulation of
their book, but only give one example of MCMC
estimation of a problem.  David Spiegelhalter warns that
MCMC can be problematic, particularly with edge effects
or that area on the edge of the parameter space.  
    Some MCMC estimation problems demand a lot
of memory--more than a 32 bit machine can offer and they can
take quite a while to process.  Moreover, some Metropolis Hastings
algorithms may not converge.
