Review quote

I remember seminars with Anselm Strauss, when he listened patiently to my work in progress and quietly remarked, "That's very nice, but it's all description." We were fortunate that he taught us the difference. Theory-building is difficult, and the more time that passes since those Glaser and Strauss days, the more we are deluged with descriptive work calling itself grounded theory. This book like its original Handbook companion is a powerful corrective.

In this volume, we are returned to the era when the method was first described, reminded of the elegant and radical proposition that grounded theory represented, and then exposed to the many cultural, situational, and professional influences on its subsequent manifestations. The authors reclaim the rich capacity of this method to build theory and have it be grounded. The many pathways to that result are effectively situated by authors who themselves contributed to grounded theory's innovation and interpretation.

Clarke's Chapter 1 is a tour de force, providing a perfect setup for the narrower foci of the subsequent chapters. From the lofty concerns of epistemology to the practical challenges of coding, readers are given generous and deeply knowledgeable guides. Authors bring a variety of viewpoints, but all are concerned with the original purposes of the grounded theory method. It is gratifying to know that current and future students of grounded theory have this handbook to help them recognize credible grounded theory and discover it for themselves. -- Margaret Kearney The original Handbook of Grounded Theory by Bryant and Charmaz continues to be one of the most valuable resources in the field. Now, the editors envision this new book as "an extension and companion... rather than an updated version of its predecessor," and it definitely succeeds at that goal. With a strong mix of new and revised chapters, it will undoubtedly be every bit as useful as the earlier volume. -- David L. Morgan

About Antony Bryant

Antony Bryant is currently Professor of Informatics at Leeds Beckett University, Leeds, UK.

He has written and taught extensively on research methods, with a particular interest in qualitative research methods, and the Grounded Theory Method in particular. His book Grounded Theory and Grounded Theorizing: Pragmatism in Research Practice was recently published by Oxford University Press (2017). He is Senior Editor of The SAGE Handbook of Grounded Theory (SAGE, 2007) and The Sage Handbook of Current Developments in Grounded Theory - both co-edited with Kathy Charmaz (SAGE, 2019).

He has supervised over 50 doctoral students, and examined many others, in topics including formal specification of software systems, development of quality and maturity frameworks, new forms of business modelling, and various aspects of e-government and e-democracy.

He is currently working with Professor Frank Land, who worked on the first commercial computer (LEO 1951), and was also the first UK Professor of Information Systems, on a series of `conversations' planned for publication that will cover issues in the development and impact of computer technology since the 1950s.

Kathy Charmaz is Professor Emerita of sociology and the former director of the Faculty Writing Program at Sonoma State University. She joined the first cohort of doctoral students at the University of California, San Francisco, where she studied with Anselm Strauss. She writes in the areas of social psychology, medical sociology, qualitative methods, and grounded theory and has written, coauthored, or coedited 14 books, including two award-winning works: Good Days, Bad Days; The Self in Illness and Time, and Constructing Grounded Theory. She received the George Herbert Mead award for lifetime achievement from the Society for the Study of Symbolic Interaction, the Leo G. Reeder award for distinguished contributions from the Medical Sociology Section of the American Sociological Association and the Lifetime Achievement award from the International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry. Professor Charmaz gives workshops on qualitative methods, grounded theory, symbolic interactionism, and scholarly writing around the globe.
