9780122146404: Grounding Grounded Theory: Guidelines for Qualitative Inquiry

Professor Dey's persuasive, instructive, critical, engaging, and often humorous investigation places many elements of grounded theory under close scrutiny. In searching out the methodological principles on which grounded theory is built, he reveals its main features as a qualitative research methodology for social research and the issues fundamental to understanding it. He also highlights the disagreements between the originators of grounded theory, their reasons, and their effects. His enlightened perspective thereby makes sense of the ways in which grounded theory approaches some of the key issues in qualitative analysis, such as coding and categorization, analysis of process, and generation of theory.

Key Features
* Critically considers what grounded theory has to offer qualitative inquiry
* Explores the principles and methodologies raised during the course of grounded theory's evolution
* Not another "how-to" version of grounded theory

Reviews
"It is [the] fundamental level of analysis that gives the book its instructive quality and makes it valuable reading for researchers contemplating any form of qualitative research...Highly recommended."
