Review: My Word!: Plagiarism and College Culture

My Word!: Plagiarism and College Culture My Word!: Plagiarism and College Culture by Susan D. Blum
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This should be required reading for any college-level instructor. Blum's accessible yet complex discussion sheds light on the slippery slope of what academic dishonesty consists of, how and why students are likely to commit it, and the challenges in addressing it. But more than anything, Blum vividly depicts the complexity of college culture that plays a central role in the development of cheating.
