What happens is that the components of the brakes are not in even contact with each other, specifically, the brake shoe is not in even contact with the drums when braking which will result in the shaking of the entire car. The drums and shoe will not in even contact if there is a warpage on the drums. But there is another reason like worn out or loose rear wheel bearings which cause the misalignment between the shoes and the drums that result in shaking also.
