Summary
The award-winning author and critic furnishes a close-up study of plagiarism, tracing the history of 'stolen words' from the seventeenth century to the present day as he examines the motivations and implications of the widespread phenomenon. Reprint. 15,000 first printing. (view table of contents)
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
"The definitive book on the subject" of plagiarism (The New York Times) is updated with a new afterword about the Internet.

What is plagiarism, and why is it such a big deal? Since when is originality considered an indispensable attribute of authorship? Stolen Words is a deft and well-informed history of the sin every writer fears from every angle. Award-winning author Thomas Mallon begins in the seventeenth century and pushes forward toward scandals in publishing, academia, and Hollywood, exploring the motivations, consequences, and emotional reverberations of an intriguing and distressingly widespread practice. In this now-classic study, Mallon proves himself to be one of our most versatile, original, and delightful writers.
