Given that only some of the background text (rather than the results section) was copied, is it reasonable to pursue this further? In particular, I was thinking to quantify the level of copying involved and ask my supervisor to withdraw the thesis until copied material is removed. Whether or not it's appropriate under the particular circumstances depends on details and subtleties that go beyond your question. Let them know that you have noticed the plagiarism and that it disturbs you - particularly the acknowledgment!
However, I risk jeopardizing a fairly good relationship with my supervisor and possibly also with the small network of colleagues. This has to do with much more than just shoving original data in a table. Say that the cut and paste is unacceptable academic behavior even if you are cited (you don't say).

He reckoned as the student was a good guy, he may not have known what plagiarism was, and perhaps did it by accident.
He did offer to acknowledge or include me in subsequent journal papers.Find an advisor with a respectable publication history and a personality that is compatible with yours.Your advisor’s research background and interests should correspond approximately with yours. If the new student works in industry now, he would not care less about the Ph D thesis.If he is in academia, this plagiarism will haunt him forever. If OP reports this, the student could have to do revisions or risk losing their Ph D (or maybe they will lose their Ph D outright); even someone in industry would not want their Ph D revoked (as then they could not claim it on their resume).issue: in academia, I've always seen "advisor" as the preferred spelling (and a number of schools agree with that assessment).However, outside of academic contexts, "adviser" seems to be preferred, both in the UK and the US, as shown here.He received his Ph D in English Literature and Medieval Studies from the University of Texas at Austin in 2014.There are 12 references cited in this article, which can be found at the bottom of the page.This article was co-authored by Christopher Taylor, Ph D.Christopher Taylor is an Adjunct Assistant Professor of English at Austin Community College in Texas.
