I have really enjoyed reading Dogs: A new understanding of Canine Origin, Behavior, and Evolution by Raymond and Lorna Coppinger. It’s a great book if you are into canine ethology.
“The other end of the leash: Why we do what we do around Dogs” by Patricia McConnell is another great read and gives fascinating perspective on how our dogs perceive us and how we can clean up our communication with them.
I second Mike’s recommendation on Turid Rugaas’s book. I have read her book, “On talking terms with dogs: calming signals”. It have changed my entire way of reading dogs and interacting with them, especially with how I use my body language.
I have not read this yet but I have also heard good things about “The evolution of canine social behavior”.
