It is known that different types of course books have been used in teaching German as foreign language courses. In addition to the German course books that are published in Germany and appeals to a large market, localized and totally local German course books produced in other countries are also used to teach German all over the world. The scientific research studies examining and investigating the local course books are scrutinized in the present study. Based upon the idea that course book analyses are as important as the quality of course books, this research is concerned about the primary studies that directly examine the local German course books. The literature review indicates that there are substantial number of studies, conducted both in Turkey and abroad, which explore the local German course books. This research aims to investigate the findings of these earlier studies by means of meta-synthesis. In this sense, identifying the most and the least frequently investigated features of German course books and the obtained results of the prior research on these course books are among the aims of this study. Accordingly, a systematic literature review was conducted in different databases and search engines, and 60 primary research studies held in Turkey and abroad between the years of 1986-2018, which meets the selection criteria, were included in this meta-synthesis. These 60 studies included in the research are about the findings of the analysis of 200 local German course books. At the end of the coding procedure the data listed under 11 themes were first synthesized among themselves, and then the synthesis findings about the themes and the subthemes were figured out by combining this first synthesis with the findings obtained through the evaluation of the studies on course books. At the end of this study, a set of suggestions to develop local German course books were provided based upon the findings of this research.
