In our society's turbulent times, Styles of Resistance explores the relationship with what an outfit from the 40’s meant to Americans during this period. Heightened wartime paranoia was a major factor for the conflicts and major tensions that young Mexican Americans felt in wartime America. The Zoot Suit was about style, it was about looking like a diamond, it was about being the biggest and the baddest. But at the end of it all, it was about being proud. This book is an examination of this subculture and is inspired by the tensions we still feel today.
