Larry J. Siegel puts his background and experience to work to provide students with a grand resource in his textbook Essentials of Criminal Justice, ISBN 9780495810995. With an in-depth look at the nuts and bolts of the criminal justice systems, this 7th edition text presents users with coverage of modern, high-profile cases as well as extensive career information and resources. Other effective features of this book include learning objectives integrated throughout and 'myth-busting' efforts to provide a student-centered, factual presentation. Larry J. Siegel received his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from the State University of New York at Albany and currently serves on the faculty of the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell. He has also devoted time to teaching at Northeastern University, the University of Nebraska-Omaha, and Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire. Siegel is a seasoned writer with extensive work in the area of crime and justice, including books on juvenile law, delinquency, criminology, and criminal procedure. He is also a court certified expert on police conduct and has testified in numerous legal cases. Siegel artfully organizes the concepts of Essentials of Criminal Justice across five sections and 14 chapters. Part I begins this text with a look at 'The Nature of Crime, Law, and Criminal Justice.' Chapters in this section present coverage of the nature of crime and victimization as well as substance and procedure. Part II delves into 'The Police and Law Enforcement' with such topics as the history and organization, roles and functions, professional, social and legal issues in policing. 'Courts and Adjudication' is the topic of choice in part III with chapters discussing courts, prosecution, and the defense, trial procedures, as well as punishment and sentencing. Par IV tackles the subject of 'Corrections and Alternative Sanctions' with chapters presenting probation, intermediate sanctions, and restorative justice, history, institutions, and populations surrounding corrections, and living in and leaving prison. The concluding section of this book is that of part V devoted to 'Contemporary Challenges of the American Justice System.' These final chapters take a look at juvenile justice in the 21st century as well as crime and justice in the new millennium, particularly terrorism and cyber crimes.
