Publisher: Birkhauser 2013 Author: Paul Knox, Heike Mayer ISBN: 9783038212515 Format: Softcover, 208pp, 240x170mm
In an age where the globalization process is threatening the uniqueness and vitality of small towns, and where most urban planning discourse is directed at topics such as metropol-regions or mega-regions and world cities, the authors here emphasize the need to critically reflect on the potential of small towns.
The second edition is expanded to cover the intensive development of small towns in China and Korea.
In addition, the authors examine the impact of the economic crisis on small towns and the recent development of the Slow City movement.
