Jaswant Singh, Word For Word

CM Naim in the Indian Express on Jaswant Singh's Jinnah: India – Partition – Independence:

I have found several cases in the footnotes and endnotes where huge chunks have been copied word-for-word from some source available on the web, with absolutely no acknowledgment of the source:

  • On pages 481-2, there is a long (19 lines) ...note -- a verbatim copy of a note that is available on the web 
  • On page 588, the long (34 lines), equally erudite note ... a meticulous copy of what is available on the web 
  • Page 623 contains a note (20 lines) on the Muddiman Committe ... stolen it word for word from the “Banglapedia” on the web
  • On page 633, the author has included a note on Ramsay Macdonald; it runs to 25 lines, and faithfully copies what the Indian National Congress has placed on the web
  • On pages 634-5, a long note on A K Fazlul Haq: one can find it on the web
