In an era in which the individuality and vitality of small towns are under threat from globalization, and city planning discussions tend to center on topics like metropolitan regions, megaregions, and global cities, the authors of this volume see a need to reflect critically on the potential of small towns. They show how small towns can meet the challenge of a fast-paced, globalized world, and they use case studies to introduce movements, programs, and strategies capable of effectively promoting local cultures, traditions, identities, and sustainability. Small towns often play critical roles in regional economic systems. When small towns focus on their specific characteristics and take advantage of their opportunities, they can become stable niches within regional, national, and global economies and take on an important role in shaping a sustainable future. In einer Zeit, in der der Prozess der Globalisierung die Besonderheiten kleiner Stadte und ihre Vitalitat bedroht, und in der sich die meisten stadtplanerischen Diskussionen um Themen wie Metropolregionen oder Mega-Regionen und Weltstadte drehen, sehen die Autoren die Notwendigkeit, das Potenzial kleiner Ortschaften kritisch zu reflektieren. Sie veranschaulichen wie Kleinstadte die Herausforderung einer schnelllebigen und globalisierten Welt annehmen koennen, und stellen anhand von Fallbeispielen Bewegungen, Programme und Strategien vor, die oertliche Kulturen, Traditionen, Identitaten und Nachhaltigkeit effektiv zu foerdern wissen. Kleinstadte spielen oftmals eine entscheidende Rolle innerhalb regionaler Wirtschaftssysteme. Wenn Kleinstadte sich auf ihre spezifischen Eigenschaften konzentrieren und ihre Moeglichkeiten nutzen, koennen sie zu stabilen Nischen in regionalen, nationalen und globalen OEkonomien werden und wesentlich dazu beitragen, eine nachhaltige Zukunft zu gestalten.
