The bestselling text on the market—now in its Eleventh Edition— CRIMINOLOGY: THEORIES, PATTERNS, AND TYPOLOGIES delivers the most comprehensive, in-depth analysis of criminological theory and crime typologies available. Offering unparalleled breadth and depth of coverage, the text is unrivaled in its strong research base and currency. Two all-new chapters focus on some of the hottest issues in the field today: green and transnational crime. Packed with real-world illustrations, the Eleventh Edition is completely updated and includes cutting-edge seminal research, up-to-the- minute policy, newsworthy examples, and hundreds of new references. A proven author and authority in criminal justice, Dr. Siegel is renowned for his unbiased presentation of theories, issues, and controversies. Avoiding ideological biases, Siegel encourages students to weigh the evidence and form their own conclusions. New learning tools maximize students' success in the course, while a careers website gives them a clear vision of the opportunities ahead. In addition, the new "Instructor Approved" Test Bank and online Lesson Plans provide instructors with powerful, timesaving tools.
"The terms and concepts are confidently and accurately defined and discussed. I particularly appreciated the author voluminous use of cited references for terms and concepts. That establishes the textbook's credibility and appropriately authoritative tone. The fact that this textbook is in its 11th edition reflects its value and demonstrates a trait that I rarely see but value highly in the academic context i.e. humble confidence."
"This text takes the material that needs to be discussed in a course on criminology and presents it in a way that is both understandable and memorable. The charts and pictures would seem to facilitate the digestion of all necessary information. In fact the necessary connection is already made for students (connections sections). This approach is very appealing to me. This text is laid out in a way that I tend to lecture… take the concept and reinforce the learning of said concept through the use of "real world examples."

Meet the Author
Larry J. Siegel was born in the Bronx in 1947. While living on Jerome Avenue and attending City College of New York (CCNY) in the 1960s, he was swept up in the social and political currents of the time. He became intrigued with the influence contemporary culture had on individual behaviour: Did people shape society or did society shape people? He applied his interest in social forces and human behaviour to the study of crime and justice. After graduating from CCNY, he attended the newly opened program in criminal justice at the State University of New York at Albany, earning both his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees there. After completing his graduate work, Dr. Siegel began his teaching career at Northeastern University, where he was a faculty member for nine years. After leaving Northeastern, 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 books on juvenile law, delinquency, criminology, criminal justice, and criminal procedure. He is a court certified expert on police conduct and has testified in numerous legal cases. The father of four and grandfather of three, Larry Siegel and his wife, Terry, now reside in Bedford, New Hampshire, with their two dogs, Watson and Cody.
