Is all book publishing used plagiarism detection? And can i check plagiarism for old book published from two years and get true percent of similarity? Regards

Most publishers do not systematically check for plagiarism. Usually, the book author simply has to assert she or he has all the necessary rights for text and figures - as a part of the contract with the publisher.

In matters of checking an already published book - yes, you may certainly do that. If you find a book is (in part) a plagiarism, you should notify the publisher. To my knowledge, there is no "automated" solution to check for supposed plagiarism which yields "valid percentages"... you will have to analyze and compare the text yourself.
