Inventor of the Disposable Culture

King Camp Gillette 1855-1932
A non fiction book by

King Camp Gillette's disposable safety razor revolutionized a time-consuming chore and made its creator a very rich man. In this incisive biography, Tim Dowling examines the contradictions at the heart of the razor king, a socialist utopian who fulminated against the evils of capitalism in his radical tracts, while at the same time zealously embracing his role as the father of the disposable economy.
