Here is what he wrote:
Our Persian historians explain that Hasan II claimed to be the imam's sole vice-regent and deputy (qa'im maqam va na'ib-i munfarid). (134) At Mu'minabad, Hasan's position as khalifa was explicitly identified with that of the Fatimid caliph al-Mustansir, who had been the imam. After the proclamation of the qiyama, Hasan, in his epistles (fusul) and addresses, apparently hinted that he himself was the imam and the Qa'im al-qiyama, the son of an imam from the progeny of Nizar b. al-Mustansir, though in appearance he had been considered to be the son of Muhammad b. Buzurg-Ummid. (135) At any rate, it seems that Hasan II claimed the imamate in some sense towards the end of his life. (136).
Dr. Daftary's book was first published in 1990 by Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, New York and Melbourne, Australia. It is available in most of the Public Libraries

Posted: Fri Nov 12, 2010 2:22 am Post subject: Yes there are too many mistakes in this book.
I HAVE JUST READ FEW PAGES FROM THIS BOOK ANF FOUND LOT OF MISTAKES.IF YOU WILL READ YOU WILL FIND THE FACT THAT AUTHOR IS TRYING TO MAKE ISMAILIS BELIEVE THAT GINANS ARE WRONG
I read the book of Farhad Daftari" A short history of Ismailis" this week and I agree with Star_Munir that Mr. Daftari criticized our ginans and made lots of mistakes in this book, I personally found 6 mistakes in this book which is untolerable for any true Ismailis. This mistakes are mentioned already in this post so I do not repeat it but only few mistakes I should write here.
1, Mr. Daftari wrote that "SYED DADU" was an Ismaili pir, but if you look
the list of Ismaili pirs you can not find Syed Dadu's name in the list.
2, He also wrote that more appointments of pirs in Sind/Punjab was stopped by Imam because there was big quarrels broken out amongst sons of pir Hasan Kabir din and Syed Imamshah. which is totally wrong the further appointments of pirs in Sind and Punjab had been stopped because Sind Jamat excuse pir Tajdin that he had stolen the gown which was gifted to Imam pir Tajdin denied it and jamat hit him on head and thus Pir Tajdin was passed away and this incident made Imam angry and therefore he stopped further appointments of pirs in Sind/Punjab province.
3. About the 'BUJ NIRANJAN" he referenced Mr. Asani's book, according Mr. Asani Buj Niranjan is not written by Pir Sadardin but a Sufi Sect name "KADARI" from Sind had written this ginan and Pir Sadardin adopted it and put his name in it. which is not write I can proove it but..... to much discussion already posted about this topic so forget it.
As per my personal thinking Mr. Daftari think that only Bohras and Ishnasharis are only real Ismailis and for that purpose he seems to me praise this sect praise their Sufis e.t.c. more then Nizari Ismaili and when the time come for Nizari Ismaili he write only few sentences.
I THINK MR. DAFTARI MUST BE AN ISNAASHRI!!!! OR MUST BE FROM IRAN!!! He quoted many times this sentence in his book "WE IRANI" OUR IRANI TRADITION"
As a head of Department of Reaserch and Publications in IIS he should write as a reliable person no doubt that he has lots of knowledge about Ismailism.
I think TB should read every publication before they put that publication for sell.
