To all research students (Phd, Masters and Final Year Project):
You might experience this situation when citing a reference for your journal/ dissertation/ thesis/ report. For sources that you have not actually seen but which are referred to in another work, list the secondary source in the Reference List. In-text, name the original work and give a citation for the secondary source.
For example, if Bodwin's work is cited in a book written by Richard and you did not read Bodwin's original work, list the source you did read (in this case the Richard reference) in the Reference List.

In Reference List write:
Richard, H. (2008). Project and Construction Management. (4th ed.).
: Addison Wesley
Longman. Auckland, New Zealand
Hope this help
