Recommendations for books on politics

'Tis the year for politics. There's been elections in Greece and France and there will be one in the USA. Who knows, something could happen in the UK by next year.
With that mind, are there any good books on politics, political campaigns, and political history? I'd like to look beyond the US as well.
For example, in the UK, just what the heck is the "Big Society?" How did David Cameron become head of the Conservative Party, and how did they win?
One recommendation that I would make is " Game Change"by Mark Halpern, which covered the 2008 US campaign. Its a good, and entertaining read.
Are there any analogues to " Game Change" about UK or European politics?
