Grounded theory methodology and procedure has become one of the most influential modes of carrying out qualitative research when generating theory is a principle aim of the researcher. While there is no shortage of monographs or papers on grounded theory, much of the literature is not accessible for relatively novice researchers.
Grounded Theory in Practice, edited by the late Anselm Strauss and Juliet Corbin, presents a series of readings that emphasize different aspects of grounded theory methodology and methods. The selections are written by former students of Strauss and have been chosen for their accessibility and range. Strauss and Corbin provide commentaries for each paper that shed additional light and help make the book even more essential for researchers interested in the application of grounded theory.
