Basics of qualitative research : grounded theory procedures and techniques by Anselm L Strauss( Book )

112 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 3,513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The second edition of this text continues to offer the immensely practical advice and technical expertise that assists researchers in making sense of their collected data. Basics of Qualitative Research, Second Edition presents methods that enable researchers to analyze and interpret their data ultimately building theory from it. Highly accessible in their approach, authors Anselm Strauss (late of the University of San Francisco and co-creator of grounded theory) and Juliet Corbin provide a step-by-step guide to the research act from the formation of the research question, through several approaches to coding and analysis, to reporting on the research. Full of definitions and illustrative examples, this highly accessible book concludes with chapters that present criteria for evaluating a study, as well as responses to common questions posed by students of qualitative research."--Jacket
The discovery of grounded theory : strategies for qualitative research by Barney G Glaser( Book )

124 editions published between 1967 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 2,208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most writing on sociological method has been concerned with how accurate facts can be obtained and how theory can thereby be more rigorously tested. In this book, Glaser and Strauss address the equally important enterprise of how the discovery of theory from data--systematically obtained and analyzed in social research--Can be furthered. The discovery of theory from data--grounded theory--is a major task confronting sociology, for such a theory fits empirical situations, and is understandable to sociologists and laymen alike. Most important, it provides relevant predictions, explanations, interpretations, and appllications. --From publisher's description

Qualitative analysis for social scientists by Anselm L Strauss( Book )

61 editions published between 1987 and 2010 in English and German and held by 962 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The teaching of qualitative analysis in the social sciences is rarely undertaken in a structured way. This handbook is designed to remedy that and to present students and researchers with a systematic method for interpreting qualitative data', whether derived from interviews, field notes, or documentary materials. The special emphasis of the book is on how to develop theory through qualitative analysis. The reader is provided with the tools for doing qualitative analysis, such as codes, memos, memo sequences, theoretical sampling and comparative analysis, and diagrams, all of which are abundantly illustrated by actual examples drawn from the author's own varied qualitative research and research consultations, as well as from his research seminars. Many of the procedural discussions are concluded with rules of thumb that can usefully guide the researchers' analytic operations. The difficulties that beginners encounter when doing qualitative analysis and the kinds of persistent questions they raise are also discussed, as is the problem of how to integrate analyses. In addition, there is a chapter on the teaching of qualitative analysis and the giving of useful advice during research consultations, and there is a discussion of the preparation of material for publication. The book has been written not only for sociologists but for all researchers in the social sciences and in such fields as education, public health, nursing, and administration who employ qualitative methods in their work."--Publisher's description

Mirrors and masks; the search for identity by Anselm L Strauss( Book )

52 editions published between 1959 and 2008 in English and German and held by 922 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Identity as a concept is as elusive as everyone's sense of his own personal identity. It is connected with appraisals made by oneself and by others. Each person sees himself mirrored in the judgments of others. The masks he presents to the world are fashioned upon his anticipations of judgments. In Mirrors and Masks, Anselm Strauss uses the notion of identity to organize materials and thoughts about certain aspects of problems traditionally intriguing to social psychologists." "The problems Strauss considers to be intriguing traditionally are those encountered when studying group membership, motivation, personality development, and social interaction. The topics covered include: the basic importance of language for human action and identity; the perpetual indeterminacy of identities in constantly changing social contexts; the symbolic and developmental character of human interaction; the theme of identity as it affects adult behavior; relations between generations and their role in personality development; and the symbolic character of membership in groups." "By focusing on symbolic behavior with an emphasis on social organization, Strauss presents a fruitful, systematic perspective from which to view traditional problems of social psychology. He opens up new areas of thought and associates matters that are not ordinarily considered to be related. Strauss believes that psychiatrists and psychologists underestimate immensely the influence of social organization upon individual behavior and individual structure, and that sociologists, whose major concern is with social organization, should employ some kind of social psychology in their research. Mirrors and Masks shows that the fusion of theoretical approaches benefits the analyses of many scholars. This fascinating work should be read by sociologists, anthropologists, psychologists, and psychiatrists

Social organization of medical work by Anselm L Strauss( Book )

18 editions published between 1985 and 1997 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book has dual messages. The first message is meant to reach social scientists who may have no particular interest in the work done on hospital wards but are deeply interested in the topic of work as such and in how it may be studied, analyzed, and theorized about. The second message is addressed to readers who are vitally concerned with caring for hospitalized patients - who are working on, around, and with sick people. In the most general sense, that latter message consists of this: the physicians, nurses, and associated technicians has been radically and irrevocably altered by today's prevalence of chronic illnesses - the illnesses that bring patients into contemporary hospitals - and by the technologies developed to manage them. We bring a sociological perspective to bear on that question. Our perspective has been shaped by many years of observation in hospitals, these in turn preceding the four-year observational and interview study on which this book is based

Continual permutations of action by Anselm L Strauss( Book )

19 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in English and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although it has not been his intention to promulgate theory for its own sake, Anselm Strauss has proven himself a formidable theorist. What has prompted this new treatise on human action (or as Strauss would prefer, acting) was a dissatisfaction with the accounts of social phenomena in the received, mainline sociological literature. Derived from the survey and functionalist traditions, such accounts have simplified complexities drastically, and mostly left implicit the underlying action assumptions of their research. Rejecting Parsons and Lazarsfeld as models, Strauss traces the perspective on human action presented in Continual Permutations of Action to a very different tradition, that of the Pragmatists. Strauss's account begins with the concept of trajectory, referring to a course of action but also embracing the interaction of multiple actors and contingencies. Certain Straussian terms and motifs come rapidly into play in the earlier sections, where he maps out his account: conditional matrix, temporality, and the like. The later sections are given over to major topics, including work and its relations with other forms of action; the body; thought processes; symbolizing; social worlds and arenas; representation; the interplay of routine and creative action; and the relevance of the concept of social worlds to understanding the interplay of several levels of social order in contemporary society. Extending the limits of interactionist theory, Strauss has raised questions about interpreting social phenomena that will be debated for some time to come
Shaping a new health care system : the explosion of chronic illness as a catalyst for change by Anselm L Strauss( Book )

8 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Part One we introduce the reader to chronic illness, the U.S. health care system's approach to chronic illness, and the need for the system's major reform. We also provide a conceptual model of the experiences of the chronically ill. In Chapter One we briefly introduce our perspective on the implications of chronic illness for the U.S. health care system. In Chapter Two we address the prevalence and complex nature of chronic illness, and in Chapter Three we summarize some of the major responses of the health care system to the increase in chronic illness. We discuss the weaknesses of the conventional acutecare approach to chronic illness in Chapter Four, noting the various criticisms that have been made of it and the critics' suggestions for how long-term illness and disabilities could be managed. We also point out how we agree and disagree with the critics. In Part Two we illustrate how the ill and their marital partners experience chronic illness and its management. These experiences have implications for health care policy, some of which are pointed out in the accompanying commentaries. Chapter Five is central to this book, for in it we offer our new theoretical framework for dealing with chronic illness and its increasing influence on the U.S. health care system and policies. In Chapters Six through Nine we describe four distinctly different stages of chronic illness: comeback phases, stable phases, unstable phases, and deterioration. In each chapter we present case illustrations and commentaries on relevant policy. In Part Three we summarize the implications for health care practice and policy that can be derived from the case illustrations provided in Part Two. In Chapter Ten we detail some of the possible effects on health care practitioners of adopting our framework. And in Chapter Eleven we summarize our conceptual model and present some of the major policy implications of our perspective
