Developing Grounded Theory: The Second Generation Revisited is a highly accessible description of the rapid development of grounded theories and the latest developments in grounded theory methods. A succinct overview of the development of grounded theory is provided, including the similarities and differences between Glaserian and Straussian Grounded Theory.
The method introduced by Schatzman, and the development of Charmaz's Constructivist Grounded Theory and Clarke's Situational Analysis are clearly presented.
The book is divided into seven sections: each type of grounded theory is discussed by the developer (or their student), followed by a chapter describing a project that used that particular type of grounded theory.
Bookending these chapters is the first chapter which describes the development and landscape of grounded theory, and a final chapter describing challenges to and the futures of grounded theory.
This book is ideally suited for beginning students trying to come to grips with the field, as well as more advanced researchers attempting to delineate the major types of grounded theory.
