Description


New York Times Bestseller! Let former Minnesota Governor, actor, and superstar professional wrestler Jesse Ventura walk you through the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr, Watergate, the Jonestown massacre, and more.

In this explosive account of wrongful acts and ensuing cover-ups, Jesse Ventura takes a systematic look at the wide gap between what the government knows and when the government knows it, and what is revealed to the American people and when it is revealed.

The media is complicit in these acts of deception, often refusing to consider alternate possibilities and dismissing voices that diverge from public opinion. In American Conspiracies, Ventura looks closely at the theories that have been presented over the years and examines the truth, as well as the lies.

The assassinations of Abraham Lincoln, the Kennedys, and Martin Luther King Jr.—these cases and more need to be re-examined in Ventura’s eyes.
  • Was Watergate presented honestly, or was the CIA involved?
  • Did the Republican Party set out to purposefully steal two elections?
  • Has all of the evidence on 9/11 been presented, or is there another angle that the media is afraid to explore?
  • Was the financial collapse and the bailout plan by the Federal Reserve the widest-reaching conspiracy ever perpetrated?
  • And much more!

Nothing gets by Jesse Ventura in American Conspiracies.

STOREFRONT CLOSED FOR REGULAR BUSINESS

Nevertheless, UPB provides ship-to-home service.

Unless and until we move our on-line fulfillment team to different premises, everything you purchase from us ships from warehouses outside of Berkeley.

Much of what we used to carry on store shelves is available, except for very expensive books, used books, and titles fallen between printings.

Certain limitations apply:

  • Sometimes we may have to split an order because books are stocked at different warehouses.
  • Thus, we may remove items from a multi-book order and ask you to resubmit them on a separate order.
  • Many high demand titles ship fairly quickly. Most other titles travel from back east, adding 2 to 5 days to delivery
  • Although we love you in Canada, Latin America, and else where, U.S. orders only.
  • Certain publishers give us low merchant discounts on certain titles, sometimes no discount at all. To be honest, we've had to raise prices on these, ranging from 5% to 30% above list.

You can also purchase eBooks and audio books through us. Distributed by Hummingbird, they include publications from the major trade publishers. Just access the menu link or the sidebar image above.

We greatly appreciate your support of the store with your book orders. Need a book without our current shopping limitations? We recommend Bookshop. View our recommendations on Bookshop, then search for whatever book you'd like.
