shameless plagiarism

By Edouard Aldahdah

Posted on May 7th, 2017 in General

So a Syrian man, Amir Mardini, plagiarized the reference book of renowned Arabian horse authority ‘Ali al-Barazi — now out of print — and put the entire content of the book online, under his name, here: www.kutub.info_18708. He removed the name of Barazi and put his name instead on the entire book. Oh, and he added a cover image. Fortunately, some of us still have copies of the Barazi book, which I can scan and put online for everyone.  Who does he think he is fooling?

  1. Edouard: That’s not as bad as some who claim to be scientists recycle and rewrite descriptions of how horses develop true collection, which has been known since Caprillys days in the early 1900s; pose as profoundly insitefull academics while NEVER footnoting or using a bibliography. One I have in mind also gaslights her students. Teaching horsemanship is such an unregulated field that anybody with a nonsensical theory can offer their ideas while claiming to have developed new paradigms. Horsemanship truly is buyer beware.

  2. For those of us who are handicapped by only speaking English, we are going to need a good translation. I know how highly you rank this book.
