Larry J. Siegel

Dr.Larry J. Siegel was born in the Bronx in 1947. While dwelling 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 modern culture had on individual behavior: Did people shape society or did society shape people? He applied his curiosity in social forces and human behavior to the research of crime and justice. After graduating from CCNY, he attended the criminal justice program at the State College of New York at Albany, earning his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees there. Dr. Siegel started his teaching career at Northeastern University and has also held instructing 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's a courtroom certified expert on police conduct and has testified in numerous legal cases.

The experienced author team of  Chris McCormick and Larry J. Siegel have provided an unbiased and fair introduction to criminological theory and criminal justice policy, providing the facts and tools needed to think critically about key issues in criminology. The textbook addresses the question of why we behave the way we do. What causes a person to become violent, while other channels his or her energy into school, work, and family? Is it influenced by culture or environment, or is it a combination? Is behaviour a function of personal characteristics, or of experiences and upbringing?

The textbook uses a typology-based approach to discuss these difficult questions. Carefully structured to cover relevant material in a balanced, comprehensive, and objective fashion, the ebook is a favourite among teachers and students alike. Students will find their learning experience is enhanced by many engaging study aids and engaging cases.
