Weird,I I don't think downloadable stuff is considered "Free" for taking without at least acknowledging the source and author.Many books have chapters submitted by various authors, with the names of the authors listed with the chapter, or at least somewhere with a list of authors and acknowledgments. This is published hardcopy?If I was you, contact the publisher directly and see what they have to say.
Do you have the whole book? Ask the publisher to send you a free copy of the entire book (I wouldn't pay for your own work).
I'd encourage you to do an internet search for key tables and paragraphs in other chapters too.
You said the title was "Scientific Writings", which could indicate articles from multiple authors, but still that doesn't make it acceptable to publish without at least acknowledging the author, and making at least a minimal attempt to contact him or her.

Thanks. I think that the main problem is that I can't afford to sue him. I can't imagine why he thought it'd be okay to publish my paper as his own. Surely he knows enough about physics to write his own article on mass. Although one needs a good understanding of the use of the stress-energy-momentum tensor and and general relativity
This has made me sick to my stomach! If I proceed with it I could ruin a man's career. If I let it go he'll get credit for things he never did and it now appears that he's been doing a lot of it.
“Dr. Durrani alone is responsible for what he has done and not his colleagues, University of Gujrat, HEC etc… HEC has NEVER condoned any act of plagiarism anywhere.”
Ijaz Durrani's recent case of plagiarism is the result of ignoring, if not condoning, by the academic community, academic institutions and HEC of a long list of such cases by other individuals and institutions, including his earlier case of plagiarism at Punjab University. Ignoring such malpractices and continuing to associate with such individuals and institutions has led to this shocking state of affairs.
Why was an individual who had earlier resigned from the University of the Punjab on plagiarism charges inducted into a senior faculty position and made a Director at GU and an HEC approved PhD supervisor?To date one hears that Dr Durrani has resigned,
How the he* did Pakistan ever manage to make a Atom bomb, if this is the academic standard.
