  29. 29. Paraphrasing Example - Original“By the middle of the eighteenth century, enthusiasm for overseas settlement, andthe political, judicial, and moral debates that it had aroused, were already on thewane. With the outbreak of the American War of Independence in 1776, it hadbecome clear to a great many that colonization was potentially as much a threat tothe colonizers as it had always so evidently been for the colonized.”1 1. Jack P. Greene, Anthony Pagden "Colonialism"  Encyclopedia of the Enlightenment. Ed. Alan Charles Kors. Oxford University Press 2003.  Hong Kong Baptist University.  30 August 2011  <http://0- www.oxfordreference.com.hkbulib.hkbu.edu.hk/views/ENTRY.html?subview=Main&entry=t173.e139- s002>
  30. 30. Paraphrasing Example - Legitimate ParaphraseAs early as 1750, the appetite for overseas expansion was decreasing. Thesubsequent revolt of Britain’s American colonies in 1776 underlined the potentialrisks of such ventures to the countries undertaking them, as well as the peoplewho were subjugated. Contemporary discussion of the political, moral, and legalconsequences of colonization also declined.1 1. Jack P. Greene, Anthony Pagden "Colonialism"  Encyclopedia of the Enlightenment. Ed. Alan Charles Kors. Oxford University Press 2003.  Hong Kong Baptist University.  30 August 2011  <http://0- www.oxfordreference.com.hkbulib.hkbu.edu.hk/views/ENTRY.html?subview=Main&entry=t173.e139- s002>
  31. 31. Paraphrasing Example - Plagiarized VersionBy the middle of the 1800s, enthusiasm for colonization, and the political, judicial,and moral arguments that it had aroused, were already waning. With the start ofthe American Revolution in 1776, it had become obvious to a lot of people thatcolonization was potentially as dangerous to the colonizers as it was to thecolonized.1 1. Jack P. Greene, Anthony Pagden "Colonialism"  Encyclopedia of the Enlightenment. Ed. Alan Charles Kors. Oxford University Press 2003.  Hong Kong Baptist University.  30 August 2011  <http://0- www.oxfordreference.com.hkbulib.hkbu.edu.hk/views/ENTRY.html?subview=Main&entry=t173.e139- s002>
