Description

King Camp Gillette's safety razor - eight years in the making - revolutionised a dangerous 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 while at the same time zealously embracing his role as father of the disposable economy.
