This book focuses on the challenge of ethnic survival and empowerment and discusses the positive role that ethnic minority media play in the process. Examining print and broadcast media, as well as linguistic and cultural diversity, the contributors provide a broad international sampling of case studies spanning a variety of ethnic minorities and countries, each representing a different set of cultural, political and economic conditions. Cases studied include the United States (Hispanic and Native), Great Britain (Welsh), Ireland (Irish), Canada (Native), Australia (Aboriginal), Israel (Romanian), France (Occitan and Basque), Greenland (Inuit), Chile (Native) and Algeria (Berber). The book also contains valuable introductory and concluding remarks to provide avenues for future cross-cultural studies on ethnic minority media.
