About

Overview

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.

Features and Benefits

  • Still the most broad-based, balanced presentation of criminology theory, law, policy, and practice available, Siegel’s CRIMINOLOGY, Eleventh Edition, offers a unique, cutting-edge feel and an unbiased presentation of theories, issues, and controversies. Unrivaled, it remains the gold standard for criminology courses.
  • To provide maximum learning reinforcement, each chapter now begins with numbered learning objectives that are carefully matched to end-of-chapter summary sections and linked to corresponding quiz/test items in the accompanying Test Bank, CourseMate Website, and Study Guide.
  • Renowned for his unbiased presentation of theories, issues, and controversies, Siegel avoids ideological biases and encourages students to weigh the evidence and form their own conclusions. He focuses on showing students the connection between criminological theory and the formulation of criminal justice policy.
  • Proven box features like “Connections” help students link issues and questions addressed in one chapter to other topics in the text. “The Criminological Enterprise” focuses on important new research efforts in criminology. “Policy and Practice in Criminology” describes crucial policy issues and innovative programs. “Race, Culture, Gender, and Criminology” boxes explore research on how diversity influences crime.
  • The popular “Profiles in Crime” case studies illustrating a particular criminological theory or topic from the chapter have been expanded.

What's New

  • New! This edition features expanded coverage of many important topics, such as the causes of violence, transnational/global crime, political crimes, “green” crime and “green criminology”--eco issues and crime, corporations involved in ecological crimes, how ecological crises affect criminal behavior-- environmental crimes (the criminal investigation into the BP oil spill), and the “new millennium order of criminality,” illustrating how prominent issues are closely tied to our increasingly technology-driven society
  • New! Part III, Crime Typologies, now includes coverage of two emerging criminological issues: global and environmental crime (Chapter 13) and transnational organized crime (Chapter 15). These two newly expanded chapters address the fact that crime is evolving in the new millennium and that criminologists must be aware of emerging trends and patterns.
  • New! A more student friendly Chapter 1 now focuses exclusively on what criminology is, what criminologists do, ethics, and a basic overview of crime and criminal law. (Historical coverage from the old Chapter 1 is now integrated throughout the text; the theory chapters provide historical coverage of each major theoretical school as the theory is presented.)
  • New! The Eleventh Edition of CRIMINOLOGY now has even more case studies and numerous new examples in every chapter to illustrate the concepts and theories of criminology. Every chapter features two to three “Profiles in Crime,” most of which are new to this edition. To name just a few, readers will find coverage of Robert Moffat (IBM executive who pleaded guilty to securities crimes), the Deepwater Horizon environmental disaster, Philip Markoff (infamous “Craigslist Murderer”), debit card skimming devices, and much more.
  • New! The “Thinking Like a Criminologist │An Ethical Dilemma” features are all new to this edition. Now integrated into each chapter, they introduce a new ethics focus and include an array of activities the instructor may assign for students to work through, including individual writing assignments, group activities, and pro/con debates.

Author Bio

Larry J. Siegel

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.
