One way to proceed is to set $PAGER to cat in Emacs shells.

(Warning: Shameless plug follows.)

Another is to use shell-integration.el which I wrote where typing "man
foo" in a *shell* buffer does like M-x man.

However, shell-integration.el doesn't really work: the commands
executed by Emacs will not be entered into the shell history and thus
cannot be recalled with "!-2" or somesuch.

(End of shameless plug.)

Another is to use M-x eshell RET instead of M-x shell RET so that "man
foo" does like M-x man RET foo RET.

Yet another way is to use M-x term RET instead of M-x shell RET.
