U.S.!

"Bachelder supposes that muckraker Upton Sinclair, author of The Jungle, has the power to repeatedly rise from the grave, "oft-resurrected and oft-assassinated" by his followers and foes. A haggard and bullet-ridden Sinclair symbolizes the bedraggled American political left." (via Village Voice)

And yes, that does seem to be a young Upton Sinclair in the photo; if so, that's friggin' brilliant, IMO.
