    far from of its kind

    The anti-Vietnam War effort was far from the first of its kind. Ever since Magnum’s foundation in 1947, its photographers have sought out social resistance and fights for freedom of expression in the furthest corners of the world. The resulting photographs, from Josef Koudelka’s harrowing images of the Warsaw Pact troops’ invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968, to Bruce Davidson’s documentation of the Civil Rights movement and Bruno Barbey’s images of the Parisian student revolts of May 1968, are among the most powerful in the history of photojournalism. They represent the coming-together of ordinary people as one to stand up against the status quo. (On Protest Photography)

    What does the first sentence mean? Does it mean that it happens so many times since the first?

    Re: far from of its kind

    It means that other conflicts had provoked protest movements before the one against the Vietnam War.

    This thread's title is missing a couple of words. It should be Far from the first of its kind.
