Books on Political Ideology

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

Since this is about books, let’s move it over to Cafe Society.

General Questions Moderator 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. :smiley: 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.
