Description

Grounded Theory is by far the most widely used research method across a wide range of disciplines and subject areas, including social sciences, nursing and healthcare, medical sociology, information systems, psychology, and anthropology. This handbook gives a comprehensive overview of the theory and practice of Grounded Theory, taking into account the many attempts to revise and refine Glaser and Strauss' original formulation and the debates that have followed.



Antony Bryant & Kathy Charmaz bring together leading researchers and practitioners of the method from the US, the UK, Australia and Europe to represent all the major standpoints within Grounded Theory, demonstrating the richness of the approach. The contributions cover a wide range of perspectives on the method, covering its features and ramifications, its intricacies in use, its demands on the skills and capabilities of the researcher and its position in the domain of research methods.





The SAGE Handbook of Grounded Theory is an indispensable reference source for academics and researchers across many disciplines who want to develop their understanding of the Grounded Theory method.

Review Text

Tony Bryant and Kathy Charmaz are the perfect editors for this excellent and forward looking Handbook which is surely destined to be a classic
David Silverman
Professor Emeritus, Goldsmiths College

For anyone interested in grounded theory this is a must have book. No longer will students have to search the library or internet to find authoritative voices on a variety of topics. It's all right there at their fingertips
Juliet Corbin
San José State University

In my experience of supervising and examining masters and doctoral

students in the social sciences over three decades, a very large proportion

of them use or claim to use grounded theory in some form or other. It

appears to be the stock method of social science research and accepted

without question by most university teachers and authorities (let alone

students) in this field....This Handbook, at over 600 pages long, with 27 chapters (in addition to the chapter length Introduction) by more than 30 contributors, offers a vast amount of

material upon which to consider some fundamental issues...There is a very

useful 'Discursive Glossary of Terms' and (what a gem!) a thorough and detailed index
John Pratt
Higher Education Review

The Sage Handbook of Grounded Theory constitutes a fascinating col-lection, and the containment of each chapter makes it very amenable to 'occasional dips'...as a cornucopia of ideas in to the world of grounded theory (which is, apparently, the most frequently-cited analytical approach in qualitative research publications), this volume is unsurpassed

About Anthony 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.
