Distinguished Indian academic and journalist Kanti Prasad Bajpai, vice dean for research (pictured above), warmly introduced U.S. columnist and author Tom Plate earlier this month at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy. The event was an hour-long presentation on the new book IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FUTURE: TOM PLATE ON ASIA, published by Marshall Cavendish International (Asia), by Plate, who is also the founder of The New Asia Media. The school, headed by the famed scholar and commentator Kishore Mahbubani, is widely viewed as the best by far in Southeast Asia and as one of the finest public policy schools globally.
