Editorial Reviews

Review

"With its storytelling and conversational approach, what might be dry becomes a stimulating and engaging read — even for the experienced researcher. This edition has been enriched in multiple ways. This classic introduction to qualitative method and practice is a pleasurable and rewarding read for the novice and experienced researcher alike." (Anne Cooper Moore 2009-11-17)

Format: Paperback
The bottom line with this book is that, while it delivers the goods in terms of an introduction to grounded theory, it's poorly written for a 3rd edition. By the time a text book is in its third version it should be tight, and I'm afraid this book just isn't. Structurally the book is basically fine, but I found myself mentally editing various sentences and paragraphs as I read it because it simply wasn't written very well. This is particularly annoying for a pair of respected qualitative researchers, seeing as language is the stock and trade of qualitative work.

Additionally, I felt like it was a little terminology heavy for terms that are not universally accepted as common language for discussing qualitative research, but I'm more forgiving in this latter regard. We are generally a bit challenged in the field when it comes to common language, and there remains a residual need to demarcate one's academic territory.

Three stars . . . it could have earned 4 with better writing/editing.

I am a UBC Okanagan graduate student working on an interdisciplinary MA focused on water governance. This term during an ethnographic methods course I was introduced to Corbin and Stuass's 'Basics of qualitative research 3e' and the software MAXQDA10. I purchased the book online during class.

This book provides a novice ethnographic researcher with valuable insights into the methods and context required to support grounded theory work. This text will serve social science researchers well; especially anthropology majors interested in applying the principles of grounded theory to support and context one's methods work. This book also provides a good overview and helpful hints for using using coding software MAXQDA10 - which is another helpful, and reasonably priced analytical tool for graduate researchers.

I would highly recommend this book to any aspiring ethnographer.

But the first chapter fell out when I opened it. After taping things back together, it's all good. I needed the text for my last doctoral studies class, and didn't need a new book, but having the pages intact would have been nice.

I'm a grad student and was desperately looking for a book to help me learn how to use grounded theory for my data. Buying this book was probably the best decision I could have made. Very clear explanations and helpful examples provided by Corbin.
