This book presents a study that examined two large minority groups in Israeli society: Russian immigrants who arrived in the country from 1989 to 1998 as a “returning Diaspora,” and the Arab citizens of Israel , who became an unwilling minority with the establishment of the State in 1948. Using institutional analysis of the Russian and Arabic media available in Israel as well as survey research among samples of the two groups, the study focused on three interrelated issues: the nature and contents of the media provided for and by these two minority communities; the way the minority members use domestic and global media in the multimedia and multilingual environment; and the patterns of media usage involved in the construction of hybrid identities that forms the basis for integration within the mainstream society.
