The SAGE Handbook of Grounded Theory gives a comprehensive overview of the theory and practice of Grounded Theory, taking into account the many attempts to revise and refine Glaser and Strauss' original formulation and the debates that have followed. Editors Anthony Bryant and Kathy Charmaz bring together leading researchers and practitioners of the method from the US, the UK, Australia, and Europe to represent all the major standpoints within Grounded Theory, demonstrating the richness of the approach. The contributions cover a wide range of perspectives on the method, including its features and ramifications, its intricacies in use, its demands on the skills and capabilities of the researcher, and its position in the domain of research methods.

About the Author
Antony Bryant is currently Professor of Informatics at Leeds Beckett University, Leeds, UK.
He has written and taught extensively on research methods, with a particular interest in qualitative research methods, and the Grounded Theory Method in particular. His book Grounded Theory and Grounded Theorizing: Pragmatism in Research Practice was recently published by Oxford University Press (2017). He is Senior Editor of The SAGE Handbook of Grounded Theory (SAGE, 2007) and The Sage Handbook of Current Developments in Grounded Theory – both co-edited with Kathy Charmaz (SAGE, 2019).
He has supervised over 50 doctoral students, and examined many others, in topics including formal specification of software systems, development of quality and maturity frameworks, new forms of business modelling, and various aspects of e-government and e-democracy.
He is currently working with Professor Frank Land, who worked on the first commercial computer (LEO 1951), and was also the first UK Professor of Information Systems, on a series of ‘conversations’ planned for publication that will cover issues in the development and impact of computer technology since the 1950s.
