Meet the Author


Larry J. Siegel was born in the Bronx in 1947. Growing up in the city, he became fascinated by the effects of social forces on human development and behavior. While attending the City College of New York in the 1960s, he was introduced to the study of crime and justice in courses taught by sociologist Charles Winick. His interest led him to attend the School of Criminal Justice at the State University of New York at Albany, where he completed his master's thesis in 1970. After receiving his Ph.D. in 1975, Dr. Siegel began his teaching career at Northeastern University in Boston, where he taught courses on juvenile justice, research methods, and statistics. After leaving Northeastern in 1980, he held teaching positions at the University of Nebraska-Omaha and Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire. He is currently a professor at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell. Dr. Siegel has written extensively in the area of crime and justice, including more than a dozen books on juvenile law, delinquency, criminology, criminal procedure, and other topics. He is a court certified expert on police conduct and has testified in numerous legal cases.

Clem Bartollas is a professor of Sociology at the University of Northern Iowa. He holds a B.A. from Davis and Elkins College, a B.D. from Princeton Theological Seminary, an S.T.M. from San Francisco Theological Seminary, and a Ph.D. in sociology with a special emphasis in criminology from The Ohio State University. He has taught at Pembroke State University, Sangamon State University, and the University of Northern Iowa, where he has received a number of honors, including Distinguished Scholar, the Donald McKay Research Award, and the Regents' Award for Faculty Excellence. Dr. Bartollas is the author of numerous articles and more than 30 texts.
