Hite Report on Shere Hite, The

The cultural icon Shere Hite has changed how we view sex, relationships, friendship and the family in the twentieth century. Her work at the advent of the new millennium remains at the cutting edge of contemporary thought. Shere Hite's groundbreaking Hite Reports have had a profound and lasting influence on generations of readers – countless millions all over the world. Hite writes here about growing up in rural Missouri, feminism, her love and sex life. She left America to live in Europe because of a political backlash, renouncing her US citizenship in 1996 to become German. Hite's initial research grew out of her involvement with a feminist group in NY, but it was with the publication of The Hite Report on Female Sexuality in 1976 that she shot to international acclaim. The four Hite Reports, showing an increasing depth to her controversial theories, have been translated into fifteen languages and published in 35 countries, receiving numerous academic and professional awards and honours. The initial Hite Report was named as one of the 100 key books of the twentieth century by The Times in 1998.
