The individual has never been more important in society - in almost every sphere of public and private life, the individual is sovereign. Yet the importance and apparent power assigned to the individual is not all that it seems. As 'Responsible Citizens' investigates via its UK-based case studies, this emphasis on the individual has gone hand in hand with a rise in subtle authoritarianism, which has insinuated itself into the government of the population. Whilst present throughout the public services, this authoritarianism is most conspicuous in the health and social welfare sectors, such that a kind of 'governance through responsibility' is today enforced upon the population.

'Responsible Citizens' reveals how rising emphasis on the individual has gone hand in hand with an increase in subtle authoritarianism - particularly within public services - such that a kind of 'governance through responsibility' is today being enforced upon the population.
