This volume presents a series of readings that emphasize different aspects of grounded theory methodology and methods. The selections are written by former students of the late Anselm Strauss and have been chosen for their accessibility and range.
Book is valuable as a researcher but would require far more curriculum development to adopt in our programme presently.
Does not provide the grounded theory framework. It is a collection of studies using grounded theory.
The book is not adopted for undergraduate students. However, it is recommended for postgraduate students writing their dissertation and choosing to work with grounded theory approach.
A good book for post graduate students undertaking qualitative research
I use it myself and found it so detailed and well written in terms of understanding the content and quite challenging method.
Interesting book although very specialised in that it refers to other researcher's experiences of using grounded theory rather than the ins and outs of how to use it.
The book is based on advanced work on grounded theory. I therefore will recommend as supplemental reading for students
Excellent reading to gain an in-depth perspective of Grounded Theory
This book is important for students who are undertaking an empirical approach to research by employing grounded theory methodology and methods to gathering and analysing field data for research projects. Grounded theory in practice presented several case studies within each chapter which students reported as being useful for understanding how to apply grounded theory within real world social contexts. The book is full of examples of good practice written in assessable language for researchers who are new to grounded theory and qualitative research, as well as presenting useful guidance for more experienced social researchers undertaking qualitative studies. This text is essential reading for those who wish to undertake a qualitative approach to research through grounded theory methodology and methods.
