Criminology in Canada highlights the dynamism and diversity in the field of Criminology, making the field come alive to students. The experienced author team of Larry J. Siegel and Chris McCormick have provided a fair and unbiased introduction to criminological theory and criminal justice policy, providing the facts and tools needed to think critically about key issues in criminology. The text addresses the question of why we behave the way we do. What causes one person to become violent, while another channels his or her energy into work, school, and family? Is behaviour a function of personal characteristics, or of upbringing and experiences? Is it influenced by culture or environment, or is it a combination? The text uses a typology-based approach to discuss these difficult questions. Carefully structured to cover relevant material in a comprehensive, balanced, and objective fashion, the text is a favourite among students and teachers alike. Readers will find their learning experience is enhanced by many engaging study aids and engaging cases. Criminology in Canada, 8th edition has been completely updated to reflect the most recent evolution of crime theory, and to illustrate the dynamic nature of criminology through the inclusion of major research studies, Supreme Court rulings, and governmental policy.

Larry J. Siegel was born in the Bronx, New York. While living on Jerome Avenue and attending City College (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 newly opened program in criminal justice at the State University of New York at Albany, where he earned both his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees. 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, Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire, and the School of Criminology and Justice Studies at the University of Massachusetts–Lowell, where he taught for 27 years. He is now a professor emeritus, still teaching online courses in criminology and criminal justice. 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 now resides in Naples, Florida, with his wife, Terry, and their two dogs, Watson and Cody.
