About the Author:

Kathy Charmaz is Professor of Sociology and Director of the Faculty Writing Program at Sonoma State University.  In the latter position, she leads seminars for faculty to help them complete their research and scholarly writing.  She has written, co-authored, or co-edited fourteen books including Good Days, Bad Days: The Self in Chronic Illness and Time, which won awards from the Pacific Sociological Association and the Society for the Study of Symbolic Interaction.  The first edition of Constructing Grounded Theory received a Critics’ Choice Award from the American Educational Studies Association.  It has been translated into Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Polish and Portuguese and two more translations are underway. A co-edited four-volume set, Grounded Theory and Situational Analysis, with senior editor, Adele Clarke, just came out as part of the Sage Benchmarks in Social Research series.  Another co-edited volume with Antony Bryant, senior editor, The Sage Handbook of Grounded Theory, appeared in 2007.  Professor Charmaz is a co-author of two multi-authored methodology books, Five Ways of Doing Qualitative Analysis: Phenomenological Psychology, Grounded Theory, Discourse Analysis, Narrative Research, and Intuitive Inquiry, which Guilford published in 2011, and Developing Grounded Theory: The Second Generation, a 2009 publication with Left Coast Press.  She has also published articles and chapters on the experience of chronic illness, the social psychology of suffering, writing for publication as well as numerous papers on grounded theory and qualitative research.  Currently she is working on a text on symbolic interactionist social psychology and several papers on methods.

Professor Charmaz has served as President of the Pacific Sociological Association, President and Vice-President of the Society for the Study of Symbolic Interaction, Vice-President of Alpha Kappa Delta, the international honorary for sociology, Editor of Symbolic Interaction, and Chair of the Medical Sociology Section of the American Sociological Association.  She has received the 2001 Feminist Mentors Award and the 2006 George Herbert Mead award for lifetime achievement from the Society for the Study of Symbolic Interaction. She lectures and leads workshops on grounded theory, qualitative methods, medical sociology, and symbolic interactionism around the globe.

Review:

Kathy Charmaz’s new edition of her classic text on developing grounded theory is an invaluable resource for qualitative and mixed methods scholars. Her formulation of grounded theory analysis is remarkable for its eclectic synthesis of what have been contentious approaches and for its clear connections to the variety of qualitative data analysis methods. I have used Dr. Charmaz’s work to teach both general induction and specifically grounded theory methods. The emphasis on research thinking and decision making, the explicit discussion of theories we start with and theories we build, and the extensive variety of examples in the second edition enrich our understanding of what we are doing when we do research. The book is an indispensable part of a qualitative research library. (Judith Preissle, Professor Emeritus)

This is a powerful, richly nuanced, evocative work. It is masterfully grounded in the grounded theory strategies and practices of established scholars. It represents a stunning and brilliantly innovative intervention. It provides ground zero - the starting place for the next generation of social science scholars. A major accomplishment. (Norman K. Denzin, College of Communications Scholar and Professor of Sociology)

This is an excellent book. It is easy to read, gives lots of practical advice and is quite profound. If you are serious about studying the conceptual universes and the interior worlds of research participants in a way which recognises that the researcher is intimately involved in the construction and analysis of data, this is a book which will make you re-think how you conduct research. (Paul Webb, Research Manager, Praxis Care, Belfast)
