Summary "The Dawning of the Apocalypse" is a revision of the creation myth of settler colonialism and how the United States was formed, arguing that, in order to understand the arrival of colonists from the British Isles in the early seventeenth century, one must first understand the "long sixteenth century"--1492 until the arrival of settlers in Virginia in 1607. During this prolonged century, Horne contends, "whiteness" morphed into "white supremacy," and allowed England to co-opt not only religious minorities but also various nationalities throughout Europe."-- Provided by publisher.
