Republished by Sociology Press, this book is a useful model for generating formal theory from
the leads of substantive theory. It shows that many studies on diverse substantive areas can be
theoretically sampled for their properties and, through constant comparative analysis, generate a formal theory. It also shows how good substantive theories that fit, work, and are relevant can stimulate their generalizability on a formal conceptual level, abstract of the time and place of social units.
