About The Solution

Overview

The bestselling text on the market--now in its Eleventh Edition--CRIMINOLOGY: THEORIES, PATTERNS, AND TYPOLOGIES delivers the most comprehensive, in-depth analysis of criminological theory and crime typologies available. Offering unparalleled breadth and depth of coverage, the text is unrivaled in its strong research base and currency. Two all-new chapters focus on some of the hottest issues in the field today: green and transnational crime. Packed with real-world illustrations, the Eleventh Edition is completely updated and includes cutting-edge seminal research, up-to-the-minute policy, newsworthy examples, and hundreds of new references. A proven author and authority in criminal justice, Dr. Siegel is renowned for his unbiased presentation of theories, issues, and controversies. Avoiding ideological biases, Siegel encourages students to weigh the evidence and form their own conclusions. New learning tools maximize students' success in the course, while a careers website gives them a clear vision of the opportunities ahead. In addition, the new "Instructor Approved" Test Bank and online Lesson Plans provide instructors with powerful, timesaving tools.


Features/Benefits

  • "Profiles in Crime" insets present case studies of actual criminals and crimes to help illustrate the position or views within the chapter. By popular demand, the feature is expanded in this edition, presenting even more real-life "from the headlines" criminal cases. Chapter 2 presents a profile highlighting the 2009 case of a Harrisburg, Pennsylvania-based prostitution ring that was broken up by Federal, State and County investigators. Chapter 10's profile tells how Jeffrey Conroy and six other Long Island, New York teenagers decided to hunt and assault Hispanic men, which led to murder.
  • "Criminological Enterprise" boxed review important issues in criminology and reflect the field's major sub-areas, measuring crime, creating theory, crime typologies, legal theory, and penology. For instance, a box in Chapter 4 covers recent work of criminologist Scott Jacques, who investigated the forms of drug market retaliation and found they followed a rational pattern. A box in Chapter 7 discusses the work of Rand Conger, a leading expert on family life who has been involved with community studies examining the influence of economic stress on families, children, and adolescents.
  • "Policy and Practice in Criminology" boxes show how criminological ideas and research can be put into action. For example, a box in Chapter 2 discusses The Crime Analysis Tactical Clearing House (CATCH), an innovative mapping program that supports local law enforcement agencies in analyzing crime series and patterns using a number of crime mapping and analysis software applications and techniques. A box in Chapter 8 discusses Victim Offender Reconciliation in Denver, Colorado, a program designed in response to a summer of violence in the metro Denver area.
  • "Race, Culture, Gender, and Criminology" boxes cover issues of racial, sexual and cultural diversity. For example, a feature in Chapter 2 entitled On the Run looks at the life of inner city kids who spend their time avoiding the police. A new "Race, Gender and Culture in Criminology" feature in Chapter 15 examines drug production and trafficking in the golden triangle.
  • "Thinking Like a Criminologist: An Ethical Dilemma" boxes present challenging questions or issues for which students must use their criminological knowledge to answer or confront ethical dilemmas. Applying the information learned in the text will help students begin to "think like criminologists."
  • Each chapter ends with "Critical Thinking Questions" that help develop students' critical thinking skills, as well as a list of "Key Terms."

What's New

  • Chapter 15, now entitled "Crimes of the New Millennium," is completely revised and focuses on the development and activities of contemporary crossnational and transnational crime groups, including Eastern European gangs, Latin American and Mexican drug cartels, and Asian transnational crime groups. A new section shows that these gangs--whose members often use cell phones and the Internet to communicate and promote their illicit activities--are a product of the cyber age. A new "Race, Gender and Culture in Criminology" feature examines drug production and trafficking in the golden triangle.
  • Chapter 13, "Enterprise Crime: White Collar and Green-Collar Collar Crime," has been broadened to divide crimes of illicit entrepreneurship into two categories: white-collar and green-collar. New discussions examine green-collar crimes (involving environmental harm), forms of green crime, and the enforcement of environmental laws. Coverage includes illegal logging, illegal wildlife exports, illegal fishing, illegal dumping, and illegal polluting. Two new sections cover the mortgage swindles that threatened to destroy the financial system and the foreclosure rescue scams designed to prey upon people who obtained mortgages and could not make payments.
  • Expanded coverage of the evolution of criminal law in Chapter 1 includes recent cases regarding stalking laws, prohibiting assisted suicide, registering sex offenders, and clarification of rape laws; recent laws affecting the use of technology in peoples' daily lives, environmental protection, and legalization of marijuana; and changes in both substantive and procedural criminal laws in the aftermath of 9/11.
  • Chapter 2, "The Nature and Extent of Crime," has expanded coverage of the role socialization and social structure play in explaining racial differences in crime rates. A new section on immigration and crime discusses the effects of legal changes on limits to immigration and/or public opinion. This new material cites recent research findings showing that immigrants have lower crime rates than native born Americans.
  • Chapter 8, "Social Conflict, Critical Criminology, and Restorative Justice" includes discussion of state (organized) crime--criminal acts committed by elected or appointed state officials in pursuit of their jobs as government representatives. A "Criminological Enterprise" ("Mass Deception") covers Scott Bonn's new book in which he argues that the George W. Bush administration manufactured public support for war on Iraq. Other new sections cover crime and social institutions, illegal domestic surveillance, and human rights violations. Sections on Left Realism are updated and expanded.

About the Author

Larry J. Siegel

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. After receiving his Ph.D., Dr. Siegel began his teaching career at Northeastern University in Boston, where he taught courses on juvenile justice, research methods, and statistics. Later, 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.
