The forms and range of alcohol control by international, national, regional and state authorities vary greatly. At one end of the scale is the system of total prohibition in some Islamic countries. At the other end is perhaps the provision of lighter alcholic beverages in those countries where wine and beer are perceived as ordinary foodstuffs without many special control measures. In many countries there is an almost continuous debate on dismantling or establishing different control measures. This booklet describes the various alcohol control measures that have been used for public health purposes and reviews research undertaken on their effectiveness.
