Book Description:

"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

From the Inside Flap:

In this iconoclastic book, Jennings recasts the story of American colonization as a territorial invasion. Shorn of old mythology and rationalizations, Puritan actions are seen in the cold light of material interest and naked expansion.
