Abstract or Description

This paper seeks to understand how United Kingdom alcohol control policies, historically and currently, are both informed by and seek to inform how we conceptualise the nation and nationality. Using the latest minimum price per unit of alcohol policy as a point of departure and setting it the context of over three hundred years of alcohol controls, this paper exposes how the internal contradictions inherent in alcohol regulation are obscured by the deployment of nationalism as a rhetorical device
