Selling 'em by the Sack: White Castle and the Creation of American Food by David G. Hogan

The first to market both the hamburger and the "to go" carry-out style to American consumers, White Castle quickly established itself as a cornerstone of the fast food industry. Here David Gerard Hogan traces the history of the hamburger's rise as a distinctive American culinary and ethnic symbol, through the prism of one of its earliest promoters. 20 illustrations.
