David Marshall Lang (6 May 1924 – 20 March 1991), was a Professor of Caucasian Studies, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. He was one of the most productive British scholars who specialized in ancient Armenian, Georgian and Bulgarian history.

Translations of his books into Russian published in Moscow are totally distorted which we can witness starting from the titles.

“Armenia: Cradle of Civilization” is distorted into “Armenians. Creative nation.”

“Georgians” is turned into “Georgians. Guardians of Holy Shrines.”

And who are those who falsified?

Translator of Armenian book is Е.Ф. Левинa – E.F. Levina.

Translator of Georgian book is S. Fedorova.

And editor of Armenian book is Georgian Ю.И. Шенгелая – Y.I. Shengelaya…

Armenian Russian version lacks images, there are only few of them while in Georgian book are added “reconstructions” by Georgian artists named Shervashidze, Tsitsishvili, Gaprindashvili and Sumbadze.
The editor of Georgian book is Glebovskaya.
