Bunton R. Changes in the control of alcohol misuse. Br J Addict. 1990;85(5):605-15.
This paper examines use of the concept of control by policy makers, researchers, health promoters, crime preventers and therapists. It also looks at recently advocated local, 'non-control' measures which are part of the public health arsenal of prevention measures. It is argued that the broadening concerns of the public health perspective may be viewed as a part of the growth of new, more pervasive forms of social regulation and control which should be a concern for those working to reduce alcohol misuse.
