They are both worth a read, the first one is written in fairly archaic English. The second is rather thin, only 75 pages or so, but with a nice fold out map of the Battle of Phnom Penh.

TITLE: The Khmer Empire: The History and Legacy of One of Southeast Asia’s Most Influential Empires
AUTHOR: Charles River Editors
ISBN: 978-1720468400
AVAILABILITY: Paperback and eBook (less than $3).
RELEASE DATE: 29 May, 2018

The Khmer Empire was a powerful empire of Southeast Asia that was established in 802 CE and ended in 1431 with the invasion of the Siamese and abandonment of Angkor. The Khmer Empire reached across modern-day Cambodia, parts of Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam, making it a strategic trading partner with ships traveling from China and India.
The long-lasting influence that this empire had on the people of Cambodia can still be felt today, with Angkor Wat being featured on the national flag.
