In his provocative Unheroic Conduct: The Rise of Heterosexuality and the Invention of the Jewish Man (1997), Daniel Boyarin argues that gender roles are not universal and traces the early Jewish ideal of the gentle, receptive male as the object of female desire in Diaspora society. Michael Gluzman, in The Zionist Body, focuses on Zionism's promise of an erotic revolution and the creation of a more vigorous and muscular type of man as symbol of the new 'normal' society.
