Product description

Review

Kathy Charmaz's new edition of her classic text on developing grounded theory is an invaluable resource for qualitative and mixed methods scholars. Her formulation of grounded theory analysis is remarkable for its eclectic synthesis of what have been contentious approaches and for its clear connections to the variety of qualitative data analysis methods. I have used Dr. Charmaz's work to teach both general induction and specifically grounded theory methods. The emphasis on research thinking and decision making, the explicit discussion of theories we start with and theories we build, and the extensive variety of examples in the second edition enrich our understanding of what we are doing when we do research. The book is an indispensable part of a qualitative research library. -- Judith Preissle, Professor Emeritus 20131129 This is a powerful, richly nuanced, evocative work. It is masterfully grounded in the grounded theory strategies and practices of established scholars. It represents a stunning and brilliantly innovative intervention. It provides ground zero - the starting place for the next generation of social science scholars. A major accomplishment. -- Norman K. Denzin, College of Communications Scholar and Professor of Sociology 20131205
