The state of art in theoretical and experimental studies of transition metal doped oxides (dilute magnetic dielectrics) is reviewed. The available data show that the generic non-equilibrium state of oxide films doped with magnetic impurities may either favor ferromagnetism with a high Curie temperature or result in a highly inhomogeneous state without longrange magnetic order. In all cases concomitant defects (vacancies, shallow donors and acceptors) play a crucial part.

PACS: 75.50.Dd Nonmetallic ferromagnetic materials;
PACS: 75.30.Et Exchange and superexchange interactions;
PACS: 71.55.–i Impurity and defect levels;
PACS: 61.72.J– Point defects and defect clusters.

Key words: dilute magnetic dielectrics, thermodynamic non-equilibrium, multiphase state.
