Larry J. Siegel, University of Massachusetts, Lowell, Emeritus

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.

John L. Worrall, University of Texas at Dallas

John L. Worrall is Professor of Criminology at the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD). A Seattle native, he holds a B.A. (psychology/law and justice) from Central Washington University. Both his M.A. (criminal justice) and Ph.D. (political science) are from Washington State University. From 1999–2006, he was a member of the criminal justice faculty at California State University, San Bernardino. He joined UTD in Fall 2006, was promoted to full professor in 2008, and in 2010 was selected to direct the criminology program, a position he held until 2015. He now directs UTD's executive M.S. program in Justice Administration and Leadership. Dr. Worrall has published articles and book chapters on a variety of topics ranging from legal issues in policing to crime measurement, having recently been ranked one of the most prolific sole and lead authors in the discipline. Courses he regularly teaches (and has authored texts for) include introductory criminal justice, criminal procedure, and crime control policy. Dr. Worrall is active in the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences, the American Society of Criminology, and a number of regional associations. He regularly works with local criminal justice agencies on evaluation projects and continues to serve as editor of the journal Police Quarterly.

LEARNING PATH

For each chapter of the book, students will find:
Learning Objectives: Chapter-opening learning outcomes spotlight what’s important.

Visual Summary: Interactive graphic that captures key concepts as a means of both previewing and reinforcing reading. The Visual Summary enables students to see how the key concepts fit together and get more information about each concept.

Reading: Convenient e-reader with integrated visuals and easily accessible notetaking, flashcard, ReadSpeak, and Questia apps.

Video Case: Timely news video connects course concepts with the real world. Students answer five multiple-choice questions relating the news story to the learning objectives in the chapter and receive feedback to help them make the right connections.

You Decide – Choose & Justify: Places the student in the role of a criminal justice professional. In the first part of the assignment, students must make two reasoned decisions based on the information in the scenario and what they learned in the chapter, with the second decision they make being determined by their first decision. The concluding feedback helps tie the concepts in the scenario back to the learning objectives in the chapter. In the second part of the assignment, Justify, students must write a short essay explaining the rationale behind their decisions. Rubrics provided.

Exam: 25 multiple-choice questions that test students on the key concepts in the chapter.

Additionally, every 3 or 4 chapters – at the end of each part in the text – students will find:

Writing Skill Builder: A 2-part activity consisting of the Writing Review – 2-3 exercises that review basic writing skills (sentence structure, citing sources, etc.) – and the Writing Practice, an essay prompt where students apply the CJ decision-making model to a criminal justice scenario and practice the specific writing skill they just reviewed. Rubrics provided.

Finally, MindTap offers:
Careers in Criminal Justice App. A career rolodex, video interviews with practicing criminal justice professionals, career planning information, and much more.

Study Skill Builder. A quick review of basic study skills – managing time, using the textbook effectively, taking notes, etc. – in addition to brief writing and presentation guides.
MindTap
Each MindTap product offers the full, mobile-ready textbook combined with superior and proven learning tools at one affordable price. Students who purchase digital access can add a print option at any time when a print option is available for their course.
