Abstract
The author tries to answer the question why the fighter for human rights and defender of Bill of rights professor Corliss Lamont became apologist of the USSR and the soviet national policy? In author’s view Lamont saw in the national policy of the USSR the paradigmatic case of solution of problems of racial and national inequalities, which were the acute problems for the USA and the world which was divided into metropolis and colonies. Georgia was one of the cases on which he observed the achievements of Soviet national policy. He is admired for it’s nature and people, dances, sings and national character of Georgians. In his view Georgians had ancient culture and adopted Christianity three centuries before the Anglo Saxon. He admires the Svan towers which in his opinion resemble the architecture of Northern Italy, considers Khevsurs as descendants of the crusaders. In Abkhazia he found self-governing village inhabited by blacks. Lamont talks about the production of manganese in Chiatura. At one time Averell Harriman, then American ambassador to Moscow headed a syndicate that operated these manganese deposits on concession basis. Lamont repeated views of soviet leadership about soviet national polity and didn’t speak of problems of this policy and the means soviet government used to resolve them.
