Front facade of University Press Books

From 1974, University Press Books has stoked the blaze of well over ten thousand minds on fire, carrying new scholarship published by the great university presses in the English-speaking world.

For more than 45 years, UPB operated out of our address at 2430 Bancroft Way in Berkeley. We're presently operating on line only. We have in sight opening an in-person service counter within the Musical Offering in late 2021. Sign up to our mailing list for word on dates when this and other changes may happen.

Order from us. Let well-wrought words churn and burn within.
