I’m interested in learning about different political ideologies. Any good books on the topic?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moral_Politics This one is my very favorite on the subject.
Are you asking about a book that is some kind of survey of political ideologies with descriptions of them? Or scholarly in-depth studies of particular ideologies? Or books by ideologues trying to explain themselves and their beliefs?
Scholarly in-depth studies of particular ideologies. I guess I should have been more clear. Whoops.
Scratch that. I guess more like a introduction to the various ideologies out there, in one book.
Founding Father: Rediscovering George Washington by Richard Brookhiser is a great, concise look at early American republicanism, and shows how fortunate we were to have such a good start. Garry Wills’s Cincinnatus covers the same ground at much greater length.
