Here is Jones' final summary of Augustus:
"Perhaps his greatest gift was his political tact. He evidently had a passion for efficiency, but he was careful not to offend public opinion by violent changes, but to work as far as possible within established forms. He was determined to rule the Empire, but he disguised his absolute powers in constitutional wrappings, and established a form of government which proved more or less stable for over two centuries."
