Butcher, Melissa & Thomas, Mandy (Eds.) (2003) Ingenious : Emerging Youth Cultures in Urban Australia. Pluto Press, North Melbourne, Victoria.

The book is edited by widely published cultural researchers Melissa Butcher from the University of Sydney and Mandy Thomas from the Australian National University who together worked on the GENERATE project.
It is far too common for our youth to be portrayed as not belonging to our dominant or mainstream culture. In Ingenious, the editors study the kaleidoscope of influences and environments our youth move within - online networks, dance parties and more - to paint a flexible, innovative generation.
