Revisiting “Analysis of Under the Veils in Casablanca”

           I regard my article on Non-Combat PTSD, my poem, and my short story as my best “published” work to date. However, I sometimes include my undergrad take on the April 2000 Salon article about international differences of gender dynamics. At the time, I did not understand feminism as much as I do now.
