What makes murder, murder? How should we understand the difference between intentional and reckless killing? Should offenders be punished differently according to the perceived severity of their crime and when should they be excused?
Using homicide as a starting point, Horder raises deeper questions of who is and should be responsible for making and changing the law. What role should there be for expert bodies, judges, and politicians? What role should there be for the general public? These are technical legal issues but ones which invoke strong emotional responses.
By examining these questions, Horder offers an insider's view into the processes of achieving law reform and expresses criticism of a system that excludes the vast majority of people from consultation on reform of the laws that govern them.
