capitalism/communism/the other ones. A book that explains all those in basic terms for thick cunts like me.
Bravo Two Zero
The Best Of The Beatles (book)
but Political Ideologies by Andrew Heywood was my A level textbook for politics. It's not very complicated and pretty decent yeah.
and less boring most of the time
this is good: http://www.polity.co.uk/book.asp?ref=9780745638393
this is probably slightly more basic http://www.amazon.co.uk/Invitation-Social-Theory-David-Inglis/dp/0745642098
'social' systems etc. it sounded like you were more interested in social theory than political theory.
those "Introducing" graphic guides are actually really good too. If it's Marxism you're interested in, the Callinicos book I mentioned first is probably better. Then there's loads of easy peasy introductory books on Marx e.g. Terry Eagleton 'Why Marx was Right'.
