"The Eurovision Handbook 2014" seeks to dispel some of the false myths that have been developed about the Eurovision Song Contest and, in turn, it aims to answer some of the questions that people may have about Eurovision. As a political geographer at NUI Maynooth in the Republic of Ireland, Dr. Adrian Kavanagh is particularly interested in the geographical aspects of the contest and hence offers a different take in this book to that offered in other studies of the Eurovision Song Contest. This book does have a certain Irish dimension to it, but it tries to avoid being solely focused on the Irish Eurovision story and seeks to offer a significant degree of coverage to all of the Eurovision participating countries, both present and past. The book also looks at other dimensions of the contest, such as the growing influence of the English language in recent decades and the development of friends and neighbours and diaspora voting trends in the wake of the major rule changes of the late 1990s.
