    not least

    Hi,

    What does the "not least" mean in this sentence?


    To such motives, yet another must be added. The contemporary phenomenon of car worship is to be explained not least by the sense of independence and freedom that ownership entails. To this pleasure camping gives an exquisite refinement.


    Thanks a lot

    What follows may not be the most important factor, but it is certainly not the least important.
