Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A clear strength in the Siegel text compared to others I've used is that it gets to the theoretical heart of the matter in explaining the theories, citing current examples of their empirical validity, and providing applied examples that place the particular theory in a real and working context. The Siegel text impresses me in its ability to expose the student to theoretical ideas in an uncomplicated manner."

"…I think the overall lack of student difficulty comes again from Siegel's ability to write clearly and efficiently thus retaining student attention"

"…a comprehensive and current text that presents criminology in a clear interdisciplinary manner that will appeal to those interested in scientific versus ideological academic instruction. The text is extremely readable and visually interesting and should appeal to college students who likely are taking criminology as an introductory course. The text could also be used in an upper-level criminology course depending on what the students may have been required to take earlier in their program of study."

"I love using this book."

"It's the best book on the market."

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.
