Abstract

Abstract:

This article discusses the compelling evidence—found in various primary and secondary sources and analyzed through methods drawn from book history and plagiarism detection—that not one of the books authored by Pres. Ferdinand E. Marcos was actually written by him. The article also shows how many of "Marcos's" books had either plagiarized content (e.g., republishing contents from previous works) or were "padded" with lengthy appendices. It also explains the seemingly far-reaching distribution network of these books. Lastly, the article looks into how these books, although they have not been republished for decades, continue to serve their intended functions.
