Rediscovering Grounded Theory

Rediscovering Grounded Theory

November 2013 | 280 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Rediscovering Grounded Theory is a bold re-evaluation of the origins of grounded theory, a philosophical clarification of its key ideas and a presentation of the most effective way to use its techniques in your research.

It answers questions such as 'What should grounded theory look like?', 'How do I recognise grounded theory?' and 'How do I produce good grounded theory?' by returning to the original ideas as they were presented by Glaser and Strauss.

Sharp, clear and thought-provoking, the book includes:

- Detailed analysis of the current literature

- Exemplar sections filled with detailed, real world examples and applications

- A detailed glossary

It will provide you with a grasp of what a grounded theory should look like, take you through the process of building a grounded theory and then explain best practice for critically evaluating the quality of grounded theory research.

Excellent book. I found it very useful to explain the main motive to retrieve Grounded Theory methodology in order to do research.
