The effect of this class-centric, economic view was to marginalize, if not wholly to obscure, other dimensions, sites, and axes of injustice.

What does it mean "if not wholly to obscure"?
Is this phrase correct grammatically?
Is this any abbreviation?

Please let me know.
Thank you.!

    It means that the effect of this economic view might have entirely obscured other dimensions, sites, and axes of injustice.

    There's nothing wrong with the grammar of the phrase, but the language in this exam is difficult.

    I see no abbreviations in that text.
