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.
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.
