The book David mentioned earlier - before the one he wrote himself :) - GOOS has a diagram on p40 that shows how the unit test cycle fits inside the acceptance test cycle. You can extend this to as many layers as you like. I wrote a blog post which has a pretty picture of the idea. Ignore the text, it's long and rambling and is about something else. I thought it was a great insight, until I realised Kent Beck wrote about self-similarity something like 5+ years ago.
