About the Author

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 behaviour: Did people shape society or did society shape people? He applied his interest in social forces and human behaviour to the study of crime and justice. After graduating from CCNY, he attended the newly opened program in criminal justice at the State University of New York at Albany, earning both his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees there. After completing his graduate work, 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. He is currently a professor at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell. Dr. Siegel has written extensively in the area of crime and justice, including books on juvenile law, delinquency, criminology, criminal justice, and criminal procedure. He is a court certified expert on police conduct and has testified in numerous legal cases. The father of four and grandfather of three, Larry Siegel and his wife, Terry, now reside in Bedford, New Hampshire, with their two dogs, Watson and Cody.

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.

Product arrived exactly as described. This book is a very interesting read. I never really thought about Juvenile Justice that much, until reading this book. There are personal real-life stories in here that will make you question why someone is labeled delinquent. If you are looking for a great intro to Juvenlie Justice, or are taking other Crimilnal Justice classes, don't hesitate to get this book!!

So far, so good. Received book in great shape and fast so I was able to get a jump on the class. A lot of info, but broken down into sections very well. The short stories of the lives of some of the people are so hard to believe. A good text book for college level.

Jam packed full of useful, insightful information; although the professor's choice of assignments added a significant amount of relevancy.
