About the Author

Larry J. Siegel was born in the Bronx. Growing up in the city, he became fascinated by the effects social forces had 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, undertaking a study of attorneys in the juvenile court process. He completed his Ph.D. in 1975, conducting a study measuring the effects of the juvenile court process on the self-image of youth. Dr. Siegel began his teaching career at Northeastern University in Boston, where he taught courses on juvenile justice, research methods, and statistics. After leaving Northeastern in 1980, 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.

Brandon C. Welsh is an Associate Professor in the College of Criminal Justice at Northeastern University as well as a Senior Research Fellow at the Netherlands Institute for the Study of Crime and Law Enforcement at Free University in Amsterdam. His research interests focus on the prevention of crime and delinquency and evidence-based crime policy. Dr. Welsh has published extensively in these areas and is an author or editor of seven books. Born in Canada, he received his undergraduate and M.A. degrees at the University of Ottawa and his Ph.D. from Cambridge University in England.

I was happy that my book was available so quickly. I was a little upset that I am not able to read it on my Samsung Galaxy 4 or my Ipod touch. Other than that I am very happy with this purchase.

Informational... yes. Interesting ... no.

Now im not the type that has to be entertained. But the chapters are very long and boring. There is way too much information packed in. They should have condensed some stuff down, kept the important stuff, and tossed the crap that was outdated, disproved, or just plain repetative.

I love the fact that its on my iPad. The search feature is amazing and makes it easy to find key terms when doing homework or research. And it's super cheap to rent and I don't have to worry about returning it since I rented a digital copy.

Bought for a class, but after the class ended I decided to keep this textbook because it would be a great book for parents to read before their children grow into teens.
Very interesting theories, ones that seem to fit well with some of the behavior I displayed as a delinquent.

I say I loved it because it was on time, the book is in fairly good shape, and it was almost three times cheaper then it would have been from the actual school. I would most definitely recommend this option to all college students.
