About 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 behavior: Did people shape society or did society shape people? He applied his interest in social forces and human behavior to the study of crime and justice. After graduating from CCNY, he attended the criminal justice program at the State University of New York at Albany, earning his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees there. Dr. Siegel began his teaching career at Northeastern University and has also held teaching positions at the University of Nebraska-Omaha, Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire, and in the School of Criminology and Justice Studies at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell (UML). Now a Professor Emeritus, he continues to teach courses on criminology and criminal justice in UML'S online master's degree program. Dr. Siegel has written extensively in the area of crime and justice, including books on juvenile law, delinquency, criminology, corrections, criminal justice, and criminal procedure. He is a court certified expert on police conduct and has testified in numerous legal cases.


"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."
