Abstract: The purposes of this study are to analyze the mechanism of urban land expansion in small towns and provide theoretical basis for administrating the land use in small towns. Documentation method was employed. The results indicated that( 1 ) urban land expansion in small towns was the result of the external shocks interacted with the internal factors of the land use system in small towns~ (2) The external shocks included that the reform of farmland system, census register system, township land system, township housing system, township public facilities investment system, and industrial structure adjustment; the internal mechanism included that the demand mechanism, supply mechanism, value increment mechanism, industrial connection mechanism, capacity control mechanism and self-control mechanism. (3) The process of the land expansion in small towns could be divided into three stages, i.e., the external shocking stage, the initial responding stage and the internal conducting stage. It is concluded that urban land expansion in small towns was significantly different in terms of space and time attributes. Therefore the controlling measures of urban land expansion in small towns should be diverse accordingly.
