    Abstract

    Through an analysis of the connection between the social backgrounds of the students and societal inclusion and exclusion, Svensson demonstrates how globalization has produced major changes in relations between the economy and class structures, stressing that the emergence of cosmopolitan elites can challenge existing conceptions of the role of the nation-state, cultural mechanisms and hierarchies. He further contributes to the debate by demonstrating how social imagination evolves from the Indian students’ contested social position as a minority group in Malaysia.
