Abstract
This is a response to five critiques of my 2018 book The Realm of Criminal Law, by Michelle Dempsey, Kimberley Brownlee, Roberto Gargarella, Tatjana Hörnle, and Gustavo Beade. Topics covered include the idea of a "public wrong"; the usefulness of the analogy I draw between criminal law and codes of professional ethics; how criminal law can function in polities characterized by deep cultural and normative differences; what scope there is for thick principles of criminalization; and whether offenders have a "right to be prosecuted".

Keywords
