"The Invasion of America launched the first major salvo against the provincialism of early American historiography, and the book's urgency, insights, and trenchant critiques endure. Jennings shook the foundations of American historical inquiry to its core, exposing the centrality of settler colonialism in the making of New England. Generations remain indebted to his bold and relentless claims."--Ned Blackhawk, Yale University
