shell quoting

Can anyone direct me to information how quoting works in
(shell-command) and (shell). I am used to bash. For example I entered,
as I would in bash

find . -name '*cpp'
But then I get
File not found - '*cpp'

If I omit the ' it doesn't really get better. The answer now is
FIND: Parameter format not correct

I have the GNU Emacs Manual 21.2, but coudnt find anything.

Thank you
