Overview

Siegel and Worrall's INTRODUCTION TO CRIMINAL JUSTICE is known for its authoritative, solidly researched, and cutting edge coverage. In the sixteenth edition, the authors pack their balanced and objective presentation with provocative real-world examples and the latest developments from the field; for instance, decriminalization and other actual and proposed reforms at all stages of the criminal justice process. Crisp writing paired with vivid illustrations guides readers through the intricate workings of the police, courts, and correctional systems; the concepts and processes of justice; and key policy issues. The MindTap® online option engages students with video cases and career-based decision-making scenarios.

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.

  • A "Significant Cases" feature is included in chapters that reference multiple Supreme Court decisions. At the end of these chapters, the "Significant Cases" tables summarize the significant cases, including the year, key issues, and decision.
  • "The Evolution of…" feature is included for some chapters. This feature summarizes the evolution of key Supreme Court decisions; for example, Caroll v. United States and Miranda v. Arizona.
  • To provide maximum learning reinforcement, each chapter's learning objectives are carefully integrated within the text, matched to end-of-chapter summary sections, and linked to corresponding test items in the accompanying Test Bank.
  • Each chapter opens with fascinating accounts of high-profile, real-life cases that illustrate key concepts, encouraging students to immediately begin absorbing and applying course material.
  • Features throughout the text help students grasp and apply what they are learning: "Criminal Justice and Technology" shows how police, courts, and corrections use new technology; "Evidence-Based Justice" focuses on policies, practices, and programs that are supported by research; "The Victim Experience" focuses on victims' roles in the criminal justice system, shown through the lens of the victim rather than the criminal or agent of the justice system; and "Reforming Criminal Justice" highlights several current ideas and cutting-edge practices for revamping criminal justice.
  • "Analyzing Criminal Justice Issues" helps students to learn and think critically about current justice issues and practices.
  • "Careers in Criminal Justice" boxes contain detailed information on salaries, educational requirements, and future prospects.
  • "Ethical Challenges in Criminal Justice: A Writing Assignment" appears in each chapter. These challenge students to solve ethical dilemmas they may confront working in criminal justice.
  • "Fact Check" marginal boxes compare students' opinions on controversial criminal justice topics to the public's opinion. They then compare poll results to the reality surrounding the problem at hand. For example, the box in Chapter 3 explores opinions concerning the best approach to dealing with crime, then compares those results to what we know about effective crime control policy.
