I would like to read a book that gives the basic structure and history of the most popular forms of government. Democracy, Communism, Socialism, etc. The whole gammit. If such a book is out there, I would like to read it.

May I suggest MAD magazine. It's about the closest to understanding government that you could get. I like the Spy-vs-Spy best. It has every kind of basket case you will find in the real world. It's much simpler.

Crappybob, The text that you are seeking is entitled "Regimes, Movements, and Ideologies: A Comparative Introduction to Political Science" by Mark N. Hagopian (ISBN 0-582-28347-7). This is THE text for PoliSci 101.

I'd like to add to the advice of DeerSlayer and Ponyboy by recommending Parliament of Whores by PJ O'Rourke.
