Siegel's best-selling CRIMINOLOGY, Eleventh Edition, provides a comprehensive analysis of criminological theory, crime typologies, and the criminal justice system. Renowned for its unbiased presentation of theories, issues, and controversies, this edition presents cutting-edge, seminal research, as well as up-to-the-minute policy and newsworthy examples. Still the gold standard for criminology courses, Siegel's text now addresses contemporary topics such as transnational/global crime, political crimes, ''green'' crime and ''green criminology,'' and the ''new millennium order of criminality.'' With its updates and array of supplements, CRIMINOLOGY, Eleventh Edition, offers a powerful set of teaching and learning tools for instructors and students alike.

Author Bio

Larry J. Siegel was born in the Bronx in 1947. While 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, and after graduating from CCNY, he attended the newly opened program in criminal justice at the State University of New York at Albany. After earning both his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees there, 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. Dr. Siegel, currently a professor at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell, has written extensively in the area of crime and justice, including books on juvenile law, delinquency, criminology, and criminal procedure. A court-certified expert on police conduct, he has testified in numerous legal cases.
