Columnist and TV host Fareed Zakaria, who acknowledged copying parts of a magazine article last week, appears to have also published a passage from a 2005 book without attribution.

Indian-American journalist Zakaria’s 2008 book, The Post-American World, contains a quote from former Intel Corp. chief executive Andy Grove about the nation’s economic power.

Grove’s comment was published three years earlier in Three Billion New Capitalists: The Great Shift of Power to the East by former commerce department official Clyde V Prestowitz.

Prestowitz said he contacted Zakaria about the Grove quote when Post-American World was published but got no response.

Zakaria finally acknowledged Prestowitz in the footnotes of The Post-American World 2.0 published last year.

Zakaria has defended the practice of not attributing quotes in a non-academic book.
