Martin Osborne and Ariel Rubinstein have made most of their theoretical contributions on the strategic side, and yet they devote a nice portion of the book to cooperative game theory. I recommend this book highly. It is beautifully done, and it recognized the importance of the cooperative theory.(Robert J. Aumann, Professor of Mathematics, The HebrewUniversity of Jerusalem)

You can find electronic copies of the book and the solution manual on the authors' website: http://books.osborne.economics.utoronto.ca/. The authors also maintain a very comprehensive errata for all printings of the book: http://www.economics.utoronto.ca/osborne/cgt/.
If you are looking for an advanced textbook in game theory, then I'd strongly recommend Ken Binmore's recent effort, Playing for Real. It's wide-ranging and rich in challenging problems.
If you find Gibbons to be too easy or way below your level, this book is one option. The more ideal option, though, would just be to start reading academic papers - as you are obviously ready to do so. That way you could get the knowledge first hand and wouldn't need to spend time on a very detailed second hand review of areas that may not be exactly what you are looking for.
