Community Development Journal 27(4): 361-370
Beachboys as culture brokers in Bakau Town, The Gambia
Based on eleven months of anthropological fieldwork, the article places the development of tourism in the town of Bakau, The Gambia, within the general context of social and economic change. It focuses on the activities of bomsas or beachboys who assume the role of tourist 'culture brokers', acting as mediators and innovators in the community and serving to facilitate cross-cultural communications between tourists and the resident population.
